Preeclampsia is a syndrome of hypertension, proteinuria and generalized edema after the 20th week of gestation and usually abates within 48 hours of delivery. Patients with severe preeclampsia and eclampsia have changes consistent with low grade DIC. In severely ill patients with DIC, generalized but nonspecific signs of fever, hypotension, hypoxia and acidosis may be found. Any pattern of bleeding may be seen, but bleeding from wound or venipuncture site is common. A case is presented of acute respiratory distress resulting from DIC combined with right upper lobe atelectasis and hemothorax after right internal jugular vein cannulation. We report this case along with review of the literature.
Key Words: Preeclampsia; C-Sec; DIC; Acute respiratory distress
