Rapidly growing mycobacteria and Nocardia/aerobic Actinomycetes can cause a variety of serious infections, particularly in immunocompromised patients. Resistance, toxicity, intolerance, and therapeutic failures may occur with traditional empiric treatment with drugs of choice. Antimicrobial susceptibility testing, especially with newer agents, may help to guide appropriate therapeutic choices. Amikacin is a medicine that is used to treat a wide number of bacterial infections. It belongs to a class of drugs that is known as aminoglycoside antibiotics and it works by stopping the growth of bacteria.
