Abstract

Two children with cyanotic congenital heart disease and Gram negative bacterial infection of prosthetic material after cardiac surgery were treated sucessfully with oral ciprofloxacin, initially in combination with netilmicin. The use of oral ciprofloxacin allowed prolonged outpatient treatment to be given, avoiding the need for intravenous access and early repeat surgery.
