PINZON, Alfredo; ARIAS, Catalina  and  CARDENAS, Ana María. [title language=en]Warfarin-induced skin and penile necrosis . Acta Med Colomb [online]. 2012, vol.37, n.3, pp.117-126. ISSN 0120-2448.

We present the case of an elderly man with multiple episodes of venous and arterial thrombosis in different locations, who developed extensive skin and penile necrosis few days after the use of a vitamin K antagonist (warfarin). As part of the thrombophilia study, we observed protein C and S deficiency. (Acta Med Colomb 2012; 37: 142-146).

Keywords : warfarin; venous and arterial thrombosis; skin and penile necrosis.
