Figure 1 – Spontaneous hematomas in a 62-year-old patient who used acetylsalicylic acid, rivaroxaban and warfarin to protect herself from COVID-19 (however, her PCR and serology tests were both negative). At the Emergence Room, her INR was 26 and the activated partial thromboplastin time ratio was 2. With the reversal of anticoagulation and clinical observation, the patient had no other bleeding complications.
