Thrombotic Storm
Thrombotic storm is characterized by the rapid development of multiple thromboses (blood clots) in a patient with an underlying hypercoagulable state. The catastrophic antiphospholipid syndrome is one type of thrombotic storm, but patients may have other risk factors for forming blood clots. Treatment is similar to the approach used for patients with catastrophic antiphospholipid syndrome.
