Abstract Sepsis is often associated with systemic intravascular activation of coagulation, potentially leading to widespread microvascular deposits of fibrin, and thereby contributing to multiple organ dysfunction. A complex interaction exists between activation of inflammatory systems and the initiating and regulating pathways of coagulation. A diagnosis of sepsis-associated disseminated intravascular coagulation can be made by a combination of routinely available laboratory tests, for which simple diagnostic algorithms have become available. Strategies to inhibit coagulation activation may theoretically be justified and are being evaluated in clinical studies.
