Stent thrombosis is a feared complication of percutaneous coronary intervention. Promises and problems, late complications and early stent thrombosis have been reported after drug eluting stents implantation too. Moreover some patients with imperative cardiologic indications for combination therapy with aspirin and clopidogrel (stent placement and/or acute coronary syndrome) have a history of allergy to aspirin. We present a case of catastrophic early drug eluting stents thrombosis in a 79-year-old Italian woman with aspirin hypersensitivity.
