Anza A. S.*, Dona Benny, Arathy R. and Sini S. G.

ABSTRACT

Methotrexate (MTX) is a disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drug that has been used widely in dermatology, oncology and rheumatology fields. Our study concentrates on a fifty year old male patient who had developed MTX overdose with bone marrow toxicity by accidental intake of the drug continuously for a week. The patient developed neutropenic fever, oral mucosal ulcer and rashes along with increased serum aminotransferase and reduced count of leukocytes and platelets. With the diagnosis of MTX overdose, the drug was discontinued and the patient underwent treatment with leucovorin, granulocyte colony-stimulating factor and empiric broad spectrum antibiotics (Meropenem and Teicoplanin). Co-existing conditions were treated accordingly.
