Clopidogrel has shown an excellent safety, tolerability and efficacy ever since its marketing. However, here we report a rare case with profound thrombocytopenia following clopidogrel administration previously safely exposed to this same drug. This reminds us that thrombocytopenia might be induced by clopidogrel even with a prior, safe history of long-term administration.
