Chloramphenicol is a bacteriostatic antimicrobial that is considered a prototypical broad-spectrum antibiotic, alongside the tetracyclines, and as it is both inexpensive and easy to manufacture it is frequently found as a drug of choice in lesser developed countries. Chloramphenicol, also known as Chlornitromycin, is effective against a wide variety of Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria, including most anaerobic organisms. Due to resistance and safety concerns, it is no longer a first-line agent for any infection in developed nations, although it is sometimes used topically for eye infections. The most serious adverse effect associated with chloramphenicol treatment is bone marrow toxicity, which may occur in two distinct forms - bone marrow suppression, which is a direct toxic effect of the drug and is usually reversible, and aplastic anemia, which is idiosyncratic and in general fatal.
