Abstract
The use of bedaquiline to treat multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) may raise safety concerns. Currently, however, no clinical information is available on the use of bedaquiline to treat MDR-TB patients with ESRD. We report the use of bedaquiline to treat two patients with MDR-TB and ESRD. Our case report highlights the safety and tolerability of bedaquiline as well as the treatment outcome. The use of bedaquiline in patients with ESRD is also discussed.
