Summaries for Purpura Fulminans

Disease Ontology : 12 A purpura characterized blood spots, bruising and discolouration of the skin resulting from coagulation in small blood vessels within the skin and rapidly leads to skin necrosis and disseminated intravascular coagulation. It is often fatal.

MalaCards based summary : Purpura Fulminans, also known as purpura gangrenosa, is related to protein c deficiency and meningococcemia. An important gene associated with Purpura Fulminans is PROC (Protein C, Inactivator Of Coagulation Factors Va And VIIIa), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Response to elevated platelet cytosolic Ca2+ and Collagen chain trimerization. The drugs Protein C and Chlorhexidine have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include skin, liver and endothelial, and related phenotypes are cardiovascular system and embryo
