Abstract


We report the case of a sepsis-induced acute kidney injury accompanied by disseminated intravascular coagulation and thrombotic microangiopathy, responsible for subsequent renal microvascular thrombosis. Contrast-enhanced ultrasound was used to assess the thrombotic cortical kidney ischemia and its evolution over time.
