Abstract

We present 2 elderly patients who developed lung infiltrates associated with eosinophilia during intravenous daptomycin treatment. Both patients improved quickly after daptomycin was stopped and steroid treatment was initiated. However, complete recovery did not occur, and both patients became chronically steroid dependent.
