Background. Colistin is an antibiotic in the polymyxin group and is especially important in the elimination of multi-drug resistant gram negative bacteria. To date, there are many studies investigating colistin related side effects, especially nephrotoxicity. However, there are few studies involving premature neonates, and this study aimed to investigate the side effects of colistin in this particular patient group.
