I hope with the cooperation of this dynamic group of young researchers the publication of a new online journal will be equally beneficial for practicing physicians and medical researchers.

Linezolid induced optic neuropathy, a serious yet reversible adverse effect: a case report

Background: Linezolid like many other systemic drugs can cause reversible sight threatening adverse reaction. A proper causality assessment tool can help decide discontinuing a drug when an adverse event is suspected.

A marked improvement in vision was seen on discontinuation of linezolid. Conclusion: A knowledge of visual monitoring in patients under long term linezolid therapy among physicians and ophthalmologists is important, especially in developing countries where infectious disease is still a problem and use of antimicrobials is hardly monitored.
