Drug-induced blood dyscrasias in Sweden.

Abstract

Cases of drug-induced aplastic anaemia, haemolytic anaemia, thrombocytopenia, and agranulocytosis reported to the Swedish Adverse Drug Reaction Committee during the five-year period 1966-70 have been analysed and compared with cases of the same cytopenias from "all" causes. Oral diuretics were a dominant cause of drug-induced thrombocytopenia, methyldopa of haemolytic anaemia, and oxyphenbutazone of aplastic anaemia. Computer systems should help such studies, particularly in showing a changing pattern of complications and causes.
