The clinical significance of DIVC is essentially an incidental finding that commonly recognized in asymptomatic patients.
We report five cases of DIVC out of 7722 patients diagnosed by contrast-enhanced Spiral CT venography (CTV) and confirmed by Turbo three-dimensional (3D) timeof-flight contrast-enhanced MR venography (MRV) (3D contrast-enhanced MRV).
Five cases of DIVC were discovered among a cohort of 7722 patients (3861 men and 3861 women, 49.5 [+ or -] 16.9 years, range 16-78 years) were selected from those referred for abdominal angiography, routine/ enhanced abdominal CT for advanced evaluation of possible abdominal problems.
The DIVC is the variation most commonly found during routine clinical checks (Senecail et al, 1987).

We use PRBC for indications like anaemia, includes nutritional, thalassemia, other haemolytic anaemias, blood loss in haemophilia, ITP, IC bleed, sepsis, DIVC, shock, bone marrow aplasia/suppression in pancytopenias, ALL and lymphomas.
FFP used in children for correction of coagulation abnormalities in coagulopathies like haemophilia, VWD, shock, DIVC, sepsis.
Most of the transfusions are in infants--below one year: 368 (31%) mainly attributed to the indications like sepsis, shock, DIVC, etc.
