Addition of Lithium Therapy in a Patient with Persistent Neutropenia Triggered with Antipsychotics

Antipsikotik ilaçların kullanımı sırasında kan lökosit sayısında azalma görülebilmektedir. Bu tür durumlarda hastanın tedavisi kesilebilir ya da değiştirilebilir ve kan sayımı değerleri yakından izlenir. Ancak bu olgu sunumunda olduğu gibi tedavi değişikliklerinin kan tablosunda düzelmeyi sağlamadığı durumlarda, lityumla güçlendirme tedavisi düşünülmelidir. Bu olgu bildiriminin amacı, tipik ve atipik antipsikotik ilaçlara bağlı gelişen inatçı nötropeni olgularında tedaviye lityum eklenmesinin yararlı olabileceğine dikkat çekmektir

Antipsikotik kullanımıyla tetiklenen nötropeni olgusunda tedaviye lityum eklenmesi

Addition of lithium therapy in a patient with persistent neutropenia triggered with antipsychotics Decrease in leukocyte count might be seen during the use of antipsychotic medications. In such cases, treatment can be stopped or changed and blood count values must be closely monitored. As in this case report, however, if changing the treatment doesn’t provide improvement in blood counts, lithium augmentation can be considered. The objective of this case report is to point out that the addition of lithium therapy may be beneficial in patients with persistent neutropenia related to typical and atypical antipsychotic drugs
