Heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT) is an immune-mediated condition causing thrombocytopenia and paradoxical thrombosis after exposure to heparin or low-molecular-weight heparin. It has been rarely reported by Fondaparinux, an artificial pentasaccharide similar to heparin. This manuscript presents a case of HIT associated with fondaparinux use.
