A 23-year-old woman developed ischemic stroke (IS) 8 to 12 hours after ingestion of sumatriptan (ST) and then developed mucosal bleeding secondary to acute thrombocytopenia likely due to dipyridamole (DP) on the 10th day poststroke. Sumatriptan-associated IS and DP-induced thrombocytopenia are rare events in themselves and their sequential occurrence in the same patient is quite exceptional. We compare our case to other similar cases in the literature.
