A 77 year old man with sepsis caused by MRSA, that could not be treated by VCM, TEIC or ABK suffered severe renal failure and required immediate hemodialysis. He also suffered DIC and liver dysfunction. The administration of LZD 600 mg/day by intravenous injection ameliorated sepsis and DIC, and renal and liver function improved. LZD is thus effective in patients with sepsis caused by MRSA for whom other are ineffective drugs or who suffer severe organ dysfunction.
