Abstract

In the current report, we describe a case of immune-mediated TTP (iTTP) in a 62-year-old man manifesting as longstanding thrombocytopenia, recurrent cardioembolic strokes, and valvular thrombogenesis over a period of 3 years. We offer educational insights regarding the identification of atypical, chronic variants of iTTP.
