Patients with malignant hypertension sometimes exhibit microangiopathic hemolytic anemia/thrombocytopenia known as thrombotic microangiopathy (TMA). On the other hand, severe hypertension is sometimes associated with hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS)/thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP). Because the clinical features of the two entities overlap significantly, it is sometimes difficult to distinguish one from the other. However, such differentiation is indispensable, since early performance… CONTINUE READING
