The use of teicoplanin is increasing with increase in the incidence of wound infections caused by methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. Teicoplanin has longer half-life than vancomycin, so it can be administerd once daily, whereas vancomycin has to be administered 3∼4 times daily. Teicoplanin is known to have lesser side effect profiles than vancomycin, such as skin eruptions, ototoxicity and nephrotoxicity. A 27-year old women in vegetative state had a grade 3 pressure sore at coccyx area. We prescribe teicoplanin to manage wound infected by methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. Plasma creatine phosphokinase (CPK) was elevated abruptly at 9th day of teicoplanin therapy. Five days after discontinuation of teicoplanin, CPK was normalized. We experienced a case of elevation of plasma creatine phosphokinase associated with teicoplanin. (J Korean Acad Rehab Med 2008; 32: 469-471)
Key Words: Teicoplanin, Creatine phosphokinase (CPK), Pressure sore
