Thromboembolic complications associated with L-asparaginase therapy. Etiologic role of low antithrombin III and plasminogen levels and therapeutic correction by fresh frozen plasma

O KucukR M Vazquez


A case of an 18-year-old woman with acute lymphoblastic leukemia who developed L-asparaginase-associated stroke and subclavian vein thrombosis is presented. The latter was also associated with a Hickman central venous catheter. Thrombotic complications occurred when plasma levels of plasminogen and antithrombin III were still markedly reduced as a result of L-asparaginase therapy, although the fibrinogen had recovered from its lower levels. The stroke was treated with fresh frozen plasma and the subclavian vein thrombosis was treated with streptokinase and fresh frozen plasma. L-asparaginase and Hickman-associated coagulopathy is reviewed and the treatment is discussed.

Blood Clotting Disorders

Thrombophilia includes conditions with increased tendency for excessive blood clotting. Blood clotting occurs when the body has insufficient amounts of specialized proteins that make blood clot and stop bleeding. Here is the latest research on blood clotting disorders.

Blood And Marrow Transplantation

The use of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation or blood and marrow transplantation (bmt) is on the increase worldwide. BMT is used to replace damaged or destroyed bone marrow with healthy bone marrow stem cells. Here is the latest research on bone and marrow transplantation.
