Clopidogrel is an antiplatelet agent prescribed widely to prevent stent thrombosis after coronary or peripheral vascular interventions and for stroke prophylaxis. The side effects of this drug include gastrointestinal symptoms, such as nausea, abdominal pain, vomiting, and bleeding. Thrombotic thrombocytopenia purpura (TTP) is a rare complication of this drug. Here, we report a case of clopidogrel-associated TTP in a patient with cerebral infarction. To our knowledge, it is first reported case of clopidogrel- associated TTP in Korea.
