Answer

Aztreonam and quinolones are useful in patients allergic to penicillin, and rifampin has been used for treatment of rhinoscleroma. TMP/SMZ is not used in primary treatment of pneumonia. They may be used as initial treatment in uncomplicated UTI and as second-line agents for ozena.

For isolates that produce ESBLs and carbapenemases, see Treatment.
