Carbamazepine is an anticonvulsant medication used primarily in the treatment of epilepsy, seizure disorder, neuropathic pain, some psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia, and as a second-line agent in bipolar disorders. Generally, it is safe to use with some nonserious side effects. However, a clinician has to be alert regarding some of its uncommon but serious side effects. Here we discuss a rare case who developed carbamazepine-induced pancytopenia. The offending drug was stopped and pancytopenia recovered within a few days.
