Treatment of Stomatococcus mucilaginosus bloodstream infection in two acute leukemia patients, first reported at our cancer center

Treatment of Stomatococcus mucilaginosus bloodstream infection in two acute leukemia patients, first reported at our cancer center

Journal of ChemoTherapy 12(6): 536-537

Vincristine, adriamycin, and dexamethasone (VAD) chemotherapy protocol is first-choice treatment in newly diagnosed multiple myeloma patients in many centers. Sudden hearing loss associated with vincristine therapy is a rarely observed event in the VAD protocol. We describe a 69-year old male patient diagnosed with multiple myeloma 7 months ago who developed sudden bilateral hearing loss related to vincristine therapy. This uncommon adverse effect of vincristine is discussed and the literature reviewed.
