Thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP) belongs to the group of diseases called Thrombotic microangiopathies (TMA). While several triggering conditions are known, often none is apparent in the individual case. We report a patient presenting with TTP that was associated with a Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) infection, with its consequent diagnostic, therapeutic and prognostic implications. Further, our case had individual clinical features that were of interest within the TTP-HIV subgroup.
