Patient received amoxicillin/clavulanic acid as prophylaxis for a dental procedure (even though not indicated at that time) with dosage of 875 mg twice daily for a total of 10 days with his symptoms starting on day 9th of therapy prior to presentation.

During his hospital stay, patient was managed with aggressive IV hydration and pain management with bowel rest of 2 days duration and significant improvement being noticed within 72 h after which patient was discharged home. Laboratory studies: WBC, amylase, lipase, and CRP. Discontinuation of offending drug (amoxicillin/clavulanic acid); aggressive IV hydration and pain management with bowel rest of 2 days duration.
