The article presents the case of an old woman who has been treated with carbamazepine because of epilepsy. Tests such as the chest computed tomography scan showed bilateral infiltrates and ground glass opacities. Laboratory tests show that she also has severe hypogammaglobulinemia. Moreover, for drug-induced lymphocyte stimulation tests, carbamazepine and suspected antibiotics were shown to be negative.
