Abstract

Consumptive coagulopathy is a known complication of large vascular tumors. We describe 2 episodes of consumptive coagulopathy in young children, which were secondary to isolated splenic vascular tumors. One child was successfully treated by subtotal embolization of the spleen, whereas the second child required splenectomy after an initial embolization improved--but did not fully control--his consumptive coagulopathy.
