Abstract

Disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) is a very rare complication of amniocentesis. We present a case of a 33-year-old patient who developed DIC with acute respiratory distress syndrome and acute kidney injury after diagnostic amniocentesis. The patient required replacement of renal function for 59 days with continuous venovenous hemodiafiltration and later with hemodialysis. She was treated with heparin, fresh frozen plasma, platelets and cryoprecipitate. Her condition was further complicated with the development of intracranial hematoma. After 67 days of hospitalization, she was discharged from the hospital with serum creatinine 337 μmol/L. Three years later, her serum creatinine was 102 μmol/L, and she is currently in the 7th month of pregnancy.
