Nicotinic acid-induced toxicity associated with cytopenia and decreased levels of thyroxine-binding globulin.

Abstract

We report the occurrence of cytopenia and hypothyroxinemia attributed to decreased levels of thyroxine-binding globulin in patients receiving nicotinic acid. We describe two patients in whom hypothyroxinemia developed while they were taking nicotinic acid; these patients also had decreased levels of thyroxine-binding globulin. Results of all thyroid… (More)
