ConclusionsIt is important to recognize the possibility that thrombotic microangiopathy may occur after severe trauma. In the critical care setting, unexplained thrombocytopenia and hemolytic anemia should be investigated to eliminate the possibility of thrombotic microangiopathy. Early plasma exchange may help to prevent unfortunate outcomes in patients with thrombotic microangiopathy following trauma.
