Summary:  Purpose: To assess the association between exposure to antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) and the occurrence of aplastic anemia.

Phenobarbital-Associated Bone Marrow Aplasia: A Case Report and Review of the Literature
TLDR
The potential mechanisms by which phenobarbital and other anti-epileptic drugs can cause aplastic anemia are discussed and the literature for previous case reports and epidemiological studies is reviewed. Expand
Anemia secondary to valproic acid therapy in a 13-year-old boy: a case report
TLDR
The case of a 13-year-old Caucasian boy who demonstrated mild anemia 12 months after the introduction of valproic acid therapy is presented, which resulted in the patient’s recovery. Expand

The Relationship of Drug Therapy to Aplastic Anemia in Pakistan: A Hospital-Based Case Control Study
Introduction Drug-induced aplastic anemia has long been a menacing outcome of modern pharmacotherapy. The incidence of idiosyncratic, drug-induced aplastic anemia varies depending on the geneticExpand
Anticonvulsant drugs and hematological disease
TLDR
This review investigates hematological effects associated with classic and newer AEDs, using a PubMed search indexed for MEDLINE to identify studies in adults, children and animals using the name of all anticonvulsant drugs combined with the terms “hematological disease” and ”hematological abnormalities” as key words. Expand
Rash y anemia aplásica inducidos por fenitoína: caso clínico Phenytoin-induced rash and aplastic anemia: case report
TLDR
A case of a 70-year-old woman who developed two severe adverse reactions simultaneously with phenytoin: a maculopapular pruritic rash with involvement of mucous and an aplastic anemia, which normalized after pheny toin withdrawal. Expand
Phenytoin-induced aplastic anemia in generalized tonic clonic seizures patient: A case report
TLDR
A 35-year-old female patient who was admitted with complaints of fever, breathlessness, and lower limb swelling is presented, which is a known case of hypertension and generalized tonic clonic seizures for which the patient developed aplastic anemia. Expand

Evaluation of Case Reports of Aplastic Anemia Among Patients Treated with Felbamate
TLDR
Felbamate is a new antiepileptic drug (AED) that is often effective in seizure disorders refractory to other treatments; its use has been greatly restricted after cases of aplastic anemia were reported. Expand
Fatal Aplastic Anemia in a Patient Treated with Carbamazepine
TLDR
A case of fatal aplastic anemia due to carbamazepine treatment in an epileptic woman is reported, and physicians and patients should be aware of the exceedingly rare but potentially fatal side effects. Expand
Late haematological complications in severe aplastic anaemia
TLDR
The incidence of late haematological complications in both groups of patients with severe aplastic anaemia in Basel from 1976 to 1986 is analysed. Expand
Aplastic Anemia Induced by Phenytoin: A Geriatric Case with Severe Folic Acid Deficiency
TLDR
A case of aplastic anemia (AA) in an older person with severe folic acid deficiency revealed by bilateral pneumonia is reported and researchers hypothesize a direct effect of folate deficiency in this potentially severe complication. Expand
Antiepileptics and Blood Dyscrasias: A Cohort Study
TLDR
Investigation of the frequency of serious blood dyscrasias in patients age 10–74 years, taking antiepileptic drugs between January 1, 1990, and October 31, 1994 found cases were rare and occurred in current users of carbamazepine, phenobarbital, phenytoin or valproate. Expand
Guidelines for the diagnosis and management of acquired aplastic anaemia
  • J. Marsh, S. Ball, +8 authors J.A.L. Yin
  • Medicine

  • 2003
TLDR
This guideline is to provide a rational approach to the investigation and management of patients with acquired aplastic anaemia and to ensure wide dissemination of these guidelines, they are also available on the BCSH website and will be reviewed on a three yearly basis. Expand
Hematologic toxicity of sodium valproate.
TLDR
Hematologic toxicities of Valproate are common, vary in onset and severity, are recurrent, transient, or persistent, and usually occur with a serum valproate level greater than 100 microg/mL. Expand

TLDR
This work has shown that first line treatment for severe AA consists of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation in young patients with HLA identical siblings, while immunosuppression therapy is used for older patients and for those of any age who lack a HLA matched donor. Expand

TLDR
The highest risks of neutropenia were generally found in patients starting treatment, including antibacterial drugs, non‐opioid analgesics, NSAIDs, antidepressants, ulcer‐healing drugs, and anti‐epileptics, which predominantly occurred during the first months of treatment. Expand
