Antimicrobial therapy of intra-abdominal infection should consider its aetiology, which is generally polimicrobial, and its location with the aim of selecting the most suitable antimicrobial agents not only according to its spectrum but also to its pharmacokinetics profile. Currently, both monotherapy and association therapy can be used, thanks the availability of newer drugs characterized by a vride range of antimicrobial activity both against aerobes and anaerobes. Antibiotic choice and duration therapy vary also according to the infection severity.
