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”
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…
