Metronidazole Induced Neurotoxicity in a Case of Liver Abscess- A Case Report
Keywords:Ataxia, Liver Abscess, Metronidazole, Neurotoxicity
Metronidazole is a commonly used drug and considered relatively safe. But it may present with neurotoxicity,
commonly peripheral and rarely central. We report here a case of a young patient with amoebic liver abscess
who continued taking metronidazole longer than the prescribed duration of the drug and developed peripheral
neuropathy and cerebellar neurotoxicity which was reversible after discontinuation of the drug.
