We report two pediatric patients with rifampin-induced hemolysis following treatment with low daily dose rifampin for methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). With the increased use of rifampin to treat MRSA, physicians should be aware that patients receiving rifampin therapy are at risk for hemolysis, even at low daily doses.
