Alternations in hemostatic mechanism during pyrazinamide therapy.
Indian Journal of Tuberculosis, 29 (2).
Full text available as:
Bleeding time, Coagulation time, Prothrombin time, Serum calcium, Plasma fibrinogen,
Platelet counts, Platelet aggregation. Platelet adhesive index estimations were done in 10 normal
healthy controls and 90 cases of pulmonary tuberculosis, to study alterations in Hemostatic mechanism
before and after pyrazinamide therapy. Pyrazinamide even in therapeutic doses affected the entire
hemostatic mechanism. Hypoprothrombinemia, thromobocytopenia, decreased adhesiveness of
platelets and inhibition of platelet aggregation were observed. Hemoptysis was seen in 12.2% cases
and in 4.4% it could be specifically attributed to pyrazinamide.
