Abstract

Authors’ conclusions: the risk of tendon rupture associated with fluoroquinolone treatment was small. The association with tendinitis was also very low. Other more common potential adverse drug effects may be more important to consider for treatment decision-making, particularly in adolescents without other risk factors for tendon injury.

Reviewers’ commentary:  in this observational retrospective cohort study, it is evidenced that the use of fluoroquinolones in adolescents does not present more associated tendon tears or injuries. In combination with other drugs, their use should be considered.
