The man, who had a history of diabetes mellitus, was diagnosed with primary immune thrombocytopenia. He started receiving treatment with clarithromycin 800 mg/day. After two weeks of treatment with clarithromycin, there was an improvement in his platelet count. However, he developed gradual nausea and palpitation secondary to clarithromycin. The man’s treatment with clarithromycin was discontinued. He received treatment with prednisolone instead of clarithromycin. A subsequent improvement in his underlying condition was noted.
