A patient developed toxic epidermal necrolysis while on carbamazepine, 80% of her skin surface being involved. She also developed a pancytopenia with a neutropenia of 0.77 x 10(9)/l (normal range 2-7.5 x 10(9)/l), but was treated with cyclosporin and granulocyte colony stimulating factor and made a full recovery.
