I was reading the latest news letter from the marfan foundation and came across a piece on certain antibiotics called fluoroquinolones causing aneurysm and dissection, although its largely been dismissed by the FDA there is new evidence in rodent trials that is showing that this is indeed the case.

From the news letter-
At this time, the Foundation’s Professional Advisory Board
suggests that the general FDA warning s be adhered to. Therefore, fluoroquinolones should be reserved for use in patients who have no other treatment options unless the benefits of the drug will outweig h the risks for serious bacterial infections.
