A 61-year-old patient who had been receiving hemodialysis three times per week due to end-stage renal disease (ESRD) for 10 years visited a nearby hospital due to upper respiratory tract infection symptoms 4 days before visiting our hospital. The patient was diagnosed with pneumonia and started treatment with 3rd-generation cephalosporin administration while hemodialysis was discontinued. On the third day of antibiotic treatment, dysphagia and dysarthria occurred, and consequently, the patient was transferred to our hospital.
