Answer

Interestingly, with the increased usage of antitumor necrosis factor-α agents, several reports of PLC induction in patients have been published. [18, 19, 20, 21]  These events remain rare and in patients with underlying inflammatory conditions such as Crohn disease. Additionally, it is not clear if a preceding illness was found in these immunosuppressed patients.
