Proliferative diabetic retinopathy as a presenting feature of Type 1 Diabetes mellitus- A case report

Ranathunga Ishara , Idampitiya Chandima

People with type 1 diabetes usually require at least 3-5 years to develop microvascular complications in comparison to those with type 2 diabetes, who may develop such complications even before the diagnosis of diabetes due to its insidious onset and the delay in diagnosis. We discuss a patient who initially presented with proliferative d...

A patient presenting with Carbimazole induced haemolytic anaemia- A case report

Ranathunga Ishara , Pambinezhut Fathima , Idampitiya Chandima

Background: Haematological side effects of Carbimazole including aplastic anaemia, thrombocytopenia and agranulocytosis are widely reported, but haemolytic anaemia is a rare occurrence. In such situations, the management options available for treating overactive thyroid disease will be limited, especially in frail elderly individuals. We report a case of Carbimazole induced haemolytic anaemia successfully treated with steroids and omitting the medication.<...

Antithyroid medication (carbimazole and propylthiouracil) induced haemolytic anaemia- a case report

Ranathunga Ishara , Idampitiya Chandima , Pambinezhut Fathima

Background: Haematological side effects of Carbimazole such as aplastic anaemia, thrombocytopenia and agranulocytosis are widely reported. However, Carbimazole induced haemolytic anaemia is rare. Proplythiouracil is known to cause leucopenia, agranulocytosis, bone marrow hypoplasia and pancytopenia. Nevertheless, Propylthiouracil associated haemolytic anemia is rarely reported. In such situations, the options for managing Hyperthyroidism are limited, especially in frail elderl...
