The incidence of Warfarin-induced skin necrosis (WISN) is very low 0.01-0.10%. The majority of the WISN cases appear between day 3 and 6 of onset of Warfarin therapy. The cases of late onset WISN are rarely seen. We report a case of late onset WISN in a young human immunodeficiency virus positive female patient with thrombotic pulmonary embolism and reactivation of pulmonary tuberculosis.
