Recently there have been few published case reports of bee Sting associated TTP. Methods: A 67-year-old man from a rural area of the Southwest Province of Iran, Ilam, was referred to the academic general hospital because of fever, chills, sweating,vomiting and dizziness following die honeybee sting on his body. Results: this study showed that,multiple co-morbidities including CVD and diabetes along with coagulation abnormalities after honeybee stings, seriously exacerbated patient hemodynamic status. Conclusion: TIP, as a major complication due to the toxic reaction of a large number of bee Slings with underlying diseases in patients, should be given more attention.
