Clinicobacteriological effect of cefepime (in combination with amikacin) was studies in 25 pediatric patients of the age of 7 to 17 years with a mixed form of mucoviscidosis at the stage of the bronchopulmonary infection exacerbation. The basic pathogens isolated from the sputum were: Pseudomonas aeruginosa sm., P. aeruginosa muc. (67.5%) and Staphylococcus aureus (29.1%). The 2-week treatment course resulted in a marked clinical effect with improvement of the lung functional indices and eradication of the majority of the S. aureus strains (81.2%) and half of the P. aeruginosa strains (49.6%). The only side effect was moderate diarrhea not requiring discontinuation of the drug use.
