Abstract

Thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura is a hematologic disorder that affects the microcirculation. A 38-year-old woman was first seen with fever, thrombocytopenia, and vaginal bleeding. Pelvic examination revealed massive vaginal necrosis. Hematology consultation resulted in agreement with the diagnosis of thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura. This is the first reported case of thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura first seen as vaginal necrosis of which we are aware.
