Core Tip Combination therapy that consists of immuno-modulators and anti-tumor necrosis factor (TNF) agents is increasingly being used for patients with chronic inflammatory diseases, such as ulcerative colitis. Anti-TNF therapy is associated with an increased risk of developing serious infections, and especially patients receiving combination treatment with thiopurines are at an increased risk. This is the first report of an acute severe tonsillitis caused by herpes simplex virus in an immunocompromised patient due combination treatment with a thiopurine and an anti-TNF agent.
