It randomized 512 women with an uncomplicated lower UTI to either 5 days of thrice-daily nitrofurantoin 100 mg or to a single 3-gram dose of fosfomycin

TUESDAY, April 24, 2018 (HealthDay News) -- Five-day nitrofurantoin is associated with increased likelihood of clinical and microbiological resolution compared with single-dose fosfomycin
among women with lower urinary tract infection (UTI), according to a study published online April 22 in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
We switched antibiotic therapy to colistin (loading dose of 9 million IU, and then 4.5 million IU BID), fosfomycin
(4g every eight hours), and tigecycline (loading dose of 100 mg, and then 50 mg BID).

Urine culture revealed Klebsiella pneumoniae, and fosfomycin
tromethamine (Monurol[R]) 3 gm by mouth once a week for three weeks was prescribed.
In addition, fosfomycin
sensitivity was seen in all isolates; 18 were sensitive to ciprofloxacin and trimethoprim-sulphamethoxazole.
