Abstract:  This case report describes the successful treatment of a bladder infection in a terminally ill patient. Therapy involved the use of a compounded formulation delivered via an unconventional delivery method (irrigation). For 5 days, 50 mL piperacillin 500 mg/50 mL was administered by direct infusion into the bladder twice daily. The patient experienced no further discomfort associated with bladder or urinary tract infection, and symptoms did not reappear for 2 months. In select cases, administration of antibiotics directly into the bladder should be considered a viable treatment option.
