Quinine-induced disseminated intravascular coagulation.
Spearing RL, Hickton CM, Sizeland P, Hannah A, Bailey RR
Recurrent disseminated intravascular coagulation occurred in 3 women after ingestion of quinine tablets for cramp. All had circulating quinine-dependent antibodies to platelets and in 2 there was initial evidence of antibody consumption, with low titres that rose steeply over the next few days and remained high for many months.
