Abstract

Heparin-induced skin lesions associated with use of low-molecular-weight heparins do not seem to be strongly associated with a systemic immunologic reaction in terms of HIT and might rather be due to DTH reactions than due to microvascular thrombosis. Hence, we propose refining existing pretest probability scores for HIT, unless underlying causes have been clarified.
