abstract

  • The administration of a low total dose of amphotericin B to four consecutive patients already receiving gentamicin resulted in a deterioration of renal function in all. No other cause of the renal dysfunction was apparent in three cases. It appears probable that these drugs exhibit synergistic nephrotoxicity.
