Vitamin K, a cofactor of coagulation cascade, is used for hemostasis in patients with abnormal coagulation status. However, it is uncertain whether administration of vitamin K elevates the risk of thrombotic events. We present a patient with trauma who developed acute multiple cerebral infarctions after receiving intravenous vitamin K for several days. We presume that vitamin K can be a contributing factor for embolism in a patient with trauma. (Korean J Stroke 2012;14:49-51)
