Abstract

The combination of sickle cell disease crisis and thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura has been described only a few times. Here we present the case of a patient with a hemolytic crisis due to sickle cell disease complicated by thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura. We also review the cases previously reported and compare and contrast them, highlighting diagnostic challenges.
