Another side-effect noted was periorbital oedema. Six children had this problem and it was mainly on the lower eyelids. It appeared within 12-24 hours of giving the drug. No other drugs were given and all renal parameters were normal in all children. The symptoms disappeared within 24 hours once the drug was discontinued. A similar finding has been reported earlier(3).
