“…There are very few cases in the literature showing that the intake of ATDs finally led to this sepsis with accompanying tissue necrosis. One case report describes the course of the particular constellation leading to the development of facial ecthyma gangrenosum (18), while another study reports necrotizing fasciitis of the left hand and forearm (19). The present report gives an example of ATD intake leading to agranulocytosis and infection by P. aeruginosa culminating in the development of Fournier gangrene.…”

“…To date only one GD patient with anti-thyroid-induced agranulocytosis has been documented with P. aeruginosa ecthyma gangrenosum and facial cellulitis. 4 Our patient's GD was recurrent after a subtotal thyroidectomy. She had normal immunoglobulin levels and elevated lymphocyte subsets, and repeated WBC counts showed no neutropenia.…”

“…1,2 Although Graves' disease (GD) is a common organspecific autoimmune disease, 3 P. aeruginosa EG has been reported in only one GD patient with carbimazole-induced agranulocytosis. 4 We describe a woman with postoperative recurrent GD who suffered from P. aeruginosa EG and cellulitis.…”

“…Review of the literature of reported cases of agranulocytosis between 1999 and 2013 identified 80 cases where the presenting symptoms were described [13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20,21,22,23,24,25,26,27,28,29,30,31,32,33,34,35,36,37]. Fever (93.8%), sore throat (68.7%) and chills (21.2%) were the commonest presenting symptoms.…”
