Zohra R. Malik* and Zareen Razaq

Abstract
Amoxcillin-clavulanic acid is a widely used drug for treatment of skin and upper respiratory tract infections. It has predictable pharmacokinetics and diarrhea is a well-known side effect. It rarely causes severe diarrhea in the absence of Clostridium Difficile infection. We present a case of severe diarrhea leading to pre-renal kidney injury and severe hyperkalemia.
