Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP) is an uncommon cause of hematological and renal abnormalities in the postoperative period. An association between TTP and orthopedic surgery, a rare entity, has been reported in the literature. It has the strong possibility of being fatal and therefore should be treated immediately, mostly by plasmapheresis. We report a 15-year-old girl of TTP following a high tibial valgus osteotomy (HTO).
