Extract

A 33-year-old woman presents with febrile neutropenia after initiating treatment with deferiprone, an iron chelating agent. She has a history of beta-thalassemia requiring monthly blood transfusions, complicated by iron overload and significant myocardial iron deposition. Before her hospitalization, she was asymptomatic from a cardiac perspective and had normal left and right ventricular systolic function. On admission, the patient was treated for a retropharyngeal abscess with piperacillin-tazobactam.
