Iodinated contrast medium, administered during several diagnostic tests may be frequent cause of anaphylactic reactions or rashes. Thrombocytopenia after injection of iodinated contrast medium is a most rare adverse event, but several published reports have shown that this complication is more common than previously thought. In patients with acute drug induced thrombocytopenia, antibody tests are often negative. Thrombocytopenia due to iodinated contrast medium is transient, but the patient is made sensitive to the drug; further examinations should therefore always be performed in the absence of iodinated contrast medium.
