Thrombotic microangiopathies (TMAs) in patients with metastatic cancer are poorly characterized. We recorded 17 patients who had TMAs associated with disseminated solid cancer in our intensive care unit over an 11-year period. We compared them with a group of 20 patients with proven idiopathic thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura hospitalized during the same period. We aimed to specify the clinical and biological features of cancer-related TMAs (CR-TMAs).
