A case of moxalactam-induced coagulopathy is reported. The authors think that this coagulopathy is caused by an effect on platelet aggregation and not by inhibition of vitamin K-dependent clotting factors. It is recommended that bleeding times be routinely checked preoperatively in patients being treated with moxalactam.
