  • In some patients who have low or no response to antiplatelet drugs, cardiovascular and cerebrovascular events still happen with standard antiplatelet therapy. In this case report, a 63-year-old woman appeared repeated episodes of limb weakness, although she had taken antiplatelet drugs, i.e. aspirin and clopidogrel, for a long time. Every time, magnetic resonance imaging showed that she had a fresh cerebral infarction; and at the same time, platelet aggregation test, clotting test, and gene test indicated clopidogrel and aspirin resistance, which meant low or no response to antiplatelet therapy. We changed immediately to cilostazol and followed up for more than 1 year. This patient had no recurrence of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular events anymore.
