Interesting, but very rare adverse reaction that needs not be treated as long as no bacterial infection complicates the situation. Then antibiotics are the therapy of choice, and not granulocyte colony stimulating factor as used in the report, because granulocytopoiesis is normal.
MISSION: Providing a multidisciplinary forum for dialogue between haematologists, transfusion medicine specialists, anaesthesiologists, intensive care and emergency physicians, surgeons, perfusionists, nurses, biomedical scientists and other healthcare professionals.
