Thirty patients were divided into 3 groups. The patients of the first, second and third group received therapeutic doses of ampicillin, erythromycin and tetracycline HC1 respectively. Motor nerve conduction was found to be impaired significantly on the third day of the antibiotic administration; the impairment regressed after the discontinuation of the antibiotics. The possible mechanisms involved are discussed.
