Abstract

Disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) is a common complication of sepsis and septic shock. While coagulation activation during sepsis, along with the involvement of innate immunity, participates in the host's defense against the pathogen (immunothrombosis), its activation is deregulated with a defect in anticoagulant and fibrinolytic regulators in DIC, results in the formation of multiple microthrombosis contributing to multiorgan failure and increased mortality in these patients. This review reports the latest pathophysiological, diagnostic and therapeutic advances in septic DIC.
