In recent years there has been reconsidered the use of antibiotics such as colistin in infections caused by multiresistant microorganisms, this situation has caused the resurgence of adverse reactions such as nephrotoxicity and neurotoxicity that led to its abandonment in the 80s. Herein, we present a case of a 75 years old woman with neurotoxicity associated with colistin treatment manifested by postanesthesia prolonged neuromuscular blockade.
