Brief Report

Abstract.

A 17-year-old anuric female patient with end-stage renal failure received a massive overdose of vancomycin and was treated with high-flux hemodiafiltration, as described in this report. The hemodiafiltration procedure with a polysulfone membrane was performed 3 times. The vancomycin concentration was decreased from 101 mg/l to 16.59 mg/l at the end of the procedure. No adverse effects were noted from either vancomycin or hemodiafiltration. Hemodiafiltration with a high-flux polysulfone membrane is a novel and safe treatment modality for vancomycin overdose in pediatric patients.
