Acute myocardial infarction is a common complication of thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP), but rarely the presenting manifestation. Anti-thrombotic therapy for myocardial infarction is rarely utilized in the setting of TTP because of elevated bleeding risk. We report a case of TTP presenting with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction and treated with thrombolytic therapy. The resultant cardiac and neurological complications highlight the challenges of using evidence-based therapy for myocardial infarction in the setting of TTP.
