IV.9.2 Leukopenia

Show Summary Details



A. Because leukopenia is relatively common after kidney transplantation, regular screening and careful evaluation of its causes are recommended. Azathioprine and mycophenolate mofetil may lead to leukopenia. The combination of allopurinol and azathioprine should be avoided. Leukopenia is often associated with viral infections.
