Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Skin necrosis due to the use of Coumarin congeners or intravenous standard heparin is a known side effect. This adverse effect is rarely described after the use of low molecular weight heparin. We report a case of Enoxaparin induced skin necrosis in a 77 years old female treated for Atrial Fibrillation and left ventricle thrombus. We reviewed the relevant literature on the subject.
