Abstract

KAIBER, Flávia Larissa et al. Heparin-induced thrombocytopenia and warfarin-induced skin necrosis: case report. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2010, vol.85, n.6, pp. 915-918. ISSN 0365-0596.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962010000600024.

This paper describes a case of heparin-induced thrombocytopenia complicated by warfarin-induced skin necrosis in a 74-year old female patient hospitalized with diagnoses of a hip fracture, deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary thromboembolism. Warfarin-induced skin necrosis is a rare complication of anticoagulant therapy, with high morbidity and mortality that may be associated with heparin-induced thrombocytopenia.

Keywords : Heparin; Necrosis; Thrombocytopenia; Warfarin.
