Antipsychotic-induced agranulocytosis is a significant side effect that is known to occur with most of the antipsychotic medications. It usually resolves once the medications are stopped and patients are able to be switched over to another antipsychotic medication. Lurasidone has not been reported to cause leukopenia and neutropenia. This case report is of a patient with a past history of risperidone induced-aganulocytosis developing dose related leukopenia and neutropenia with lurasidone.
