A combination of antiplatelet agents, corticosteroids, plasmapheresis and fresh plasma achieved complete remission in a 35-yr old man diagnosed of thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura who presented with hemolytic anemia, renal and neurologic damage.
No symptoms 9 months after finishing treatment have been observed. Platelet and lactate dehydrogenase levels were the most useful analytical parameters in the follow-up.
