Abstract

Clozapine has been reported to cause agranulocytosis, neutropenia, and leucopenia that usually occur within 18 weeks of initiation of treatment. We report a case of delayed onset leucopenia after 11 years of treatment with clozapine, which reversed within a few days after discontinuation of medication.
