Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Isotretinoin is used to treat a spectrum of dermatologic conditions. The present article reports the case of a 15-year-old female patient who exhibited agranulocytosis after the initiation of isotretinoin administration. Agranulocytosis is a rare but life-threatening side effect of isotretinoin use, and clinicians must be aware of agranulocytosis.
