Introduction: Cisplatin is a platinum-based chemotherapeutic drug that is commonly used to treat a variety of solid tumors. Accelerated arterial and venous thrombosis is becoming more widely recognized as a potentially life-threatening cisplatin consequence.
Case Report: We describe a case of 35-year-old male with no risk factors for vascular disease presented with right femoropopliteal embolus leading to gangrene of right foot.
Discussion: We review the literature on the incidence and pathogenesis of cisplatin induced arterial thrombosis.
Conclusion: Cisplatin causes arterial thrombosis, and this case report describes acute femoropopliteal embolus as a result of its use. We seek to enhance clinician awareness of these complications, which can occur even when no other risk factors are present.
