Abstract

Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are widely used for treating depressive and anxiety disorders. Although SSRIs have a safety profile, some authors have reported that they associated with an increased risk of bleeding events. We report a case of paroxetine- and sertraline-associated ecchymoses in a patient with depression.
