Major hemorrhage following administration of intrapleural streptokinase.

Abstract

Severe spontaneous bleeding has not been reported to complicate therapy with intrapleural streptokinase (SK). Recent data have demonstrated intrapleural SK to be devoid of systemic fibrinolytic effect. This report presents a patient who suffered major hemorrhage following the administration of 500,000 units of SK intrapleurally.
