Disseminated intravascular coagulation and purpura fulminans secondary to infection.

Abstract

Infection is one of the commonest causes of disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC). DIC is a complex disorder that results from an imbalance of the pro- and anticoagulant regulatory pathways. This chapter will explain the cellular and molecular basis of the disorder and consider the rationale behind current and experimental treatment strategies.
