A heparin-induced case of thrombocytopenia occurring in an adolescent is reported. Its physiopathology and treatment are discussed. Complications are not only bleeding, but also arterial or venous thrombosis. Usually, stopping of heparin therapy is necessary, but sometimes the treatment should be followed with low molecular weight heparin.
