Abstract

Purpura fulminans is a nonspecific hematologic emergency with high initial mortality, representing a thrombotic occlusion of blood vessels leading to skin necrosis and disseminated intravascular coagulation, and often reported in the setting of sepsis. We report a case of nonfatal purpura fulminans in the context of angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma (AITL).
