    Abstract

    This chapter covers the diagnosis and treatment of disseminated intravascular coagulation. Disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) may be found in patients with a variety of disease states. DIC can present with a spectrum of findings ranging from asymptomatic abnormal laboratory findings to florid bleeding or thrombosis. DIC is always a consequence of another pathologic process and represents the final common pathway of coagulation dysregulation.
