15 March 2022 (Tuesday) - Tenofovir


As I was peering down the microscope today I found a patient with neutropenia. Not a massive neutropenia (it was 1.2 “whatever the units are”), and very little (i.e. nothing) else of note.
The diagnosis was “tenofovir

Tenofovir is an antiviral agent, and one of its side-effects is that it can cause neutropenia in over ten per cent of people taking it. There’s an article about that which you can see by clicking here.
I shall bear this in mind…
