Clopidogrel is a drug which is used in the prevention of atherothombotic complications in patients that have suffered from myocardial infarction and in the combined therapy with the acetylsalcylic acid in patients to whom a stent after percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty has been placed. The antiaggregant inhibition effect of clopidogrel should be kept in mind when it is associated to omeprazol. Here, we present a clinical case about acute stent thrombosis as a consequence of the interaction of these drugs.

Key words: clopidogrel, omeprazol, drug interaction, stent thrombosis.
