It is necessary to distinguish between pyogenic and tuberculous spondylitis of infectious spondylitis, if it is pyogenic spondylitis, antimicrobial therapy should be directed against an identified microorganism and clinical assessment should be done at 4 weeks. But if microorganism is a anaerobic bacteria, especially Peptostreptococcus anaerobius, combination antibiotic therapy should be considered bacause it may be a component of mixed infections as a passenger and have abilities to induce abscesses, other bacterial growth as a synergy effect. In addition, echocardiography may be necessary because pyogenic spondylitis is associated with infective endocarditis about 12%. We report a 64-year-old man who was treated for infectious spondylitis accompanied by Peptostreptococcus anaerobius bacteremia, but had to undergo heart surgery because an attack of infective endocarditis with systemic embolism during hospitalization.

Abstract PDF
Among the Acetylcholinesterase inhibitors as used for Alzheimer's disease treatment, Galantamine has been recently developed and widely used owing to proven its clinical efficacy and safety. However, it has reported that prolonged QT interval, which can lead to ventricular arrythimias such as Torsade de points, has developed in Galantamine-treated patients. A 74-year-old female Alzheimer's patient been treated with galantamine for 8 months visited the hospital complaining about frequent dizziness. ECG monitor was performed promptly, it was informed that the prolonged QTc interval was increased 450 ms to 486 ms. So, we made her stop taking the galantamine, and after that QTc interval has normalized to 406 ms. In this article, we reported the first case on prolonged QT interval associated with galantamine in Korea.
