Severe thrombocytopenia with bleeding associated with a life-threatening thrombotic manifestation in the setting of antiphospholipid syndrome is a major diagnostic and therapeutic challenge for the clinician. Hemorrhage is a less common complication than thrombosis in patients with APS, although severe thrombocytopenia can sometimes result in bleeding. There are no evidence-based guidelines regarding the management of a patient with severe thrombocytopenia associated with a major thrombotic manifestation. In this case report, we review the literature reporting the difficulties in management of such patient.
