Comments from related studies:
From this study (3 years ago):
Was misdiagnosed with lumbar osteomylitis,given PICC line home infusion 2g IV Vancomycin every 24hrs & 1g IV Ceftriaxone every 12 hrs for 3 days. On day 4 IV Vancomycin was doubled to 2g every 12 hrs.
By day 8 became nauseated, feverish, lethargic, could not stay awake during day, woke @11pm) burning mouth painful/difficult to eat, dry rashy patches on chest, below chin, jaw and around mouth, vaginal burning, swollen painful axillary and inguinal lymph nodes Right side only. Was hospitalized with "Vancomycin Toxicity" blood level of 61mg/ml.
I had clinical presentation of Drug Reaction Eosinophilia Systemic Syndrome-multi-organ failure, 6% eosinophils, full body erythametous rash,swelling, severe nausea,high fever, acute renal failure, oral/GI/vaginal mucosal burning, full body pain, aggitation, delerium, etc. toxic symptoms increased over the next two weeks, hearing loss,toxic hepetitis, vision "seeing everything yellow", subsegmental atelecatasis,plural effusion, acute pulmonary edema episode, possible anterior myocardial infarct.Day 22 discharged & my skin was peeling around my lips/mouth/chin/face then rapidly began sloughing off in wet great swaths from my head down-scalp, face, neck, chest,nipples, shoulders, arms, hands, fingers, palms, torso, back, buttocks, pubic, thighs, knees, calves, feet, heels, toes, soles of feet. The entire top layer of skin detached from the dermis leaving raw, red, chalky, dry dermis &virtually had no skin on 7 day post-hospital follow-up. The dermatologist wanted me to be re-admitted in a "Burn Unit" to manage thermal regulation, hydration and calorie support and oral steroids but the ID Dr insisted "topical only" steroids then was sent home. I lost 20+lbs rapidly while skin regrew & have since suffered daily fatigue 18+mos with post-digestive upper left quad stomach/duodeneum/pancreas abdominal pain, endoscopy tomorrow.
