We describe a case of a woman with essential thrombocythemia (ET) who had a subsequent successful pregnancy after a myo­cardial infarction and aortocoronary bypass grafting. We report the therapeutic management with clopidogrel and low molecular weight heparin. A healthy child was born spontaneously after 41 weeks of pregnancy. The placenta was morphologically normal. No maternal cardiac problems occurred.
