Acute eosinophilic pneumonia secondary to daptomycin: a report of three cases.
Repository Usage Stats
We describe 3 cases of daptomycin-induced pulmonary toxic effects that are consistent with drug-induced acute eosinophilic pneumonia.

Using prospective data collected as part of our surveillance activities in the Duke Infection Control Outreach Network (DICON), I and my colleagues have focused on these specific areas of research: • The accuracy and reliability of s
