In general, ciprofloxacin is well tolerated. The most common adverse effects are nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, dizziness, nervousness, and rash. Reversible leukopenia can be associated with the use of oral ciprofloxacin, as shown by our case. Leukopenia should be watched for as the use of this drug increases.
