Consumptive Coagulopathy

From “Sunny:”

Disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) and consumptive coagulopathy are used interchangeably. My question is, are
they actually the same?

Hello, Sunny. Yes these are simply synonyms for the same disorder. The term consumptive coagulopathy reflects the diminished coagulation factor activity typical of the condition, whereas DIC describes formation of microthrombi in capillaries and organs.
