Description Vancomycin-induced nephrotoxicity is a serious complication in the treatment of serious G + infections. Its quantification remains controversial, and its incidence is increasing in connection with the change to the recommended higher target levels of 15-20 mg / l because of the risk of resistance The aim of the study was to determine the degree of risk of developing nephrotoxicity depending on the vancomycin plasma concentration and try to detect other potential risk factors contributing to the development of renal impairment.
