Acute pancreatitis as a cause of thrombotic microangiopathy is very rare. We report a case of 40-year-old woman with idiopathic recurrent pancreatitis, who presented with acute pancreatitis complicated by thrombotic microangiopathy. Although thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura/hemolytic uremic syndrome (TTP/HUS) has been reported as causing acute pancreatitis, the induction of TTP/HUS by pancreatitis is rare. As far as we are aware this is the first reported case of TTP/HUS in association with pancreatitis in India. Our patient had a complete recovery of her thrombotic microangiopathy following plasma exchange therapy.
