Abstract

Subcutaneous hemorrhage is a well-known complication of anticoagulant therapy. However, tissue necrosis of the skin and subcutaneous tissue is rare following such treatment. We describe a case of a 62 year old female, with hemorrhagic breast necrosis following the administration of sodium warfarin (Coumadin).
