Abstract

A 43-year-old female patient with Basedow-Graves' disease developed agranulocytosis in the eighth month of propylthiouracil therapy. After discontinuing the drug, a broad spectrum antibiotic regimen plus recombinant human granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF), a human haematopoietic growth factor, were started. Her granulocyte count returned to normal with the second dose of G-CSF, and ulcerating pharyngitis improved rapidly. We think that in patients with propylthiouracil-induced agranulocytosis, G-CSF will reduce the risk and severity of infection, and should be accepted as a part of the standard therapy.
