Department of Medicine, Medical College of Wisconsin, Milwaukee.


Rheumatoid arthritis is not considered to be associated with recurrent thrombosis. We report a patient, who while receiving anticoagulants had repeated life-threatening episodes of thrombosis. She later developed severe rheumatoid arthritis. After receiving successful antiarthritic therapy and withdrawal of anticoagulants, she had no further episodes of thrombosis.
