By S.C. Rizzo, G. Ricevuti, R. Invernizzi, A. Mazzone and G. Nastasi


Nineteen patients with hematological malignancies (5 malignant lymphomas, 9 acute leukemia and 5 other hematological diseases) were treated with aztreonam alone or in combination for infection. Four out of five patients in the lymphoma group, 6/9 in the leukemia group and 4/5 in the last group were considered cured of their infection. No important clinical side effects or consistent deterioration of hematology and chemistry tests were observed
