This work reports levels of erythromycin base in serum and sputum after rectal administration of two suppositories of erythromycin base (500 mg/suppository). Antibiotic absorption is immediate as it appears from the results of serum levels. The peculiar broncho-pulmonary tropism of erythromycin is confirmed; therapeutical levels are present in sputum after rectal administration of the antibiotic.
