I know a 16 year old male who had a chest infection. He was administered velosef and cephradine for 5 days. After the 5th day, he suddenly developed symptoms of ADEM (within hours). MRI showed signs of transverse myelitis. He has paralysis waist down currently.

I want to know whether the antibiotics were the cause for his current symptoms.
