Abstract

We represent here a 30-year-old woman with cardiac leiomyosarcoma who developed thrombocytopenia and deep vein thrombosis a few days after the start of low molecular weight heparin. Thrombocytopenia improved after replacement of low molecular weight heparin with hirudine. We speculated that cardiac leiomyosarcoma is a predisposing factor for development of heparin induced thrombocytopenia.
Keywords: Low molecular weight heparin, Heparin, Thrombocytopenia, Leiomyosarcoma, Thrombosis

Implication for health policy/practice/research/medical education:

It is possible that cardiac leiomyosarcoma is a predisposing factor for development of heparin induced thrombocytopenia.
