DIC - No entries found that match DIC. per the Merck Veterinary Manual online at: http://www.merckvetmanual.com, I was not able to find "DIC", but the search engine provided 14 "articles" for that search, the first of which is: "Acquired Coagulation Protein Disorders" and states: "Most coagulation proteins are produced primarily in the liver. Therefore, liver disease characterized by necrosis, inflammation, neoplasia, or cirrhosis often is associated with decreased production of coagulation proteins, particularly Factors VII, IX, X, and XI." and refers on to: "(see rodenticide poisoning)". A search of: http://www.medterms.com using "DIC" provided: "3 articles" for search keyword or phrase "DIC", the titles of which are: "Leukemia in the Family", "Acute promyelocytic leukemia" and "APL" which provides a potential definition of "DIC" as "APL is consistently associated with a disorder that resembles (but is not identical to) disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC). "There is in APL a pronounced tendency to hemorrhage (bleeding). The bleeding can manifest itself as petechiae (little bleeding spots in the skin or elsewhere), small ecchymosis (bruises), epistaxis (nose bleeds), bleeding in the mouth, hematuria (blood in the urine), bleeding from venipuncture and bone marrow sites. . . " so apparently the "translation" of "DIC" is disseminated intravascular coagulation.
