Disseminated intravascular coagulation Causes
Disseminated intravascular coagulation are caused by several disease: 1) a systemic inflammatory response, leading to activation of the cytokine network and subsequent activation of coagulation (eg, in sepsis or major trauma); 2) release or exposure of procoagulant material into the bloodstream (eg, in cancer or in obstetric cases).
Conditions associated with DIC include the following:
Amniotic fluid embolism
Hemolysis, elevated liver enzymes, low platelets (HELLP) syndrome/eclampsia
Retained dead fetus syndrome
