PMID:  18204124     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A case of a 73-year obese female with arterial hypertension, periodical metrorrhagia, polydipsia, and polyuria is presented. The patient was admitted to the hospital because of increasing dyspnea, cough, subfebrile body temperature, and decreasing exercise tolerance. Physical examination and laboratory tests were suggestive for massive lung embolism. Low molecular heparin was started and after 5 days' therapy, heparin-induced thrombocytopenia was diagnosed.
