Thrombotic microangiopathies are disorders that arise due to a diffuse endothelial damage. They predominantly manifest either as thrombotic trombocytopenic purpura (TTP) or hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS). When they arise as a complication of pregnancy and associated disorders they are associated with a high mortality and morbidity.
