Beta lactam antibiotics are one of the most commonly prescribed antibiotic drug classes in medical practice. Cephalosporins differ from other beta lactam antibiotics in both their structure and spectrum of action. Beta lactam antibiotics, in general, may cause platelet deficiency owing to their interference with normal platelet function. Cefoperazone, belonging to the group of 3rd generation cephalosporins, has been reported to cause hypoprothrombinemia and hence, bleeding manifestations. However, it is not known to alter platelet function and count at the routinely used therapeutic doses. This case report highlights a rare case of cefoperazone-induced thrombocytopenia.
