Abstract

Clopidogrel – a popular antiplatelet drug widely used in treatment of various vascular diseases – is known for its favourable safety profile. Thrombotic thromocytopenic purpura (TTP) is very rare but serious adverse reaction associated with clopidogrel. We present a case of patient treated with clopidogrel who developed moderate TTP with leukopenia and symptoms of haemorrhagic diathesis.
