Abstract: We are presenting a case of TTP with undetectable levels of ADAMTS 13 in a 39-year-old woman. Diagnosis of systemic lupus was evoked in the setting of thrombotic microangiopathy. The patient presented normal renal function but important neurological impairment. Treatment with daily plasmapheresis as well as Rituximab, cyclophosphamide as steroids was required to achieve clinical improvement.
