Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura in Carbon Monoxide PoisoningReport of a Case

Arch Intern Med. 1980;140(1):104-105. doi:10.1001/archinte.1980.00330130106025

• A young, previously healthy man was arrested for bizarre behavior outside his poorly ventilated hotel room. He was found to have carbon monoxide poisoning and thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura complicated by respiratory dysfunction. The occurrence of these previously unrelated diseases in the same patient may be more than coincidence.
