If the TT is also prolonged, then hypofibrinogenemia, dysfibrinogenemia, anticoagulant use (direct thrombin inhibitor), and exposure to bovine thrombin must be considered.
Laboratory examination showed mild anemia, agranulocytosis, thrombocytopenia, bilirubinemia, elevation of aminotransferase, hypertriglyceridemia, hypofibrinogenemia, and elevated ferritin.
37) Despite the experimental methodology of this study, there have been critics of the external validity of its findings due to the possibility that the most relevant population has been excluded, since the majority of patients included in the study had no hypofibrinogenemia and also because the dose used barely achieved a marginal increase in plasma levels of fibrinogen.
The diagnosis of HLH was ruled out, as the patient did not manifest some of the main diagnostic criteria such as cytopenia, splenomegaly, hypertriglyceridemia, and hypofibrinogenemia.
Their ages ranged from 3 months to 10 years, male: female ratio was 2: 1, fever was present in 100% cases, splenomegaly in 100%, cytopenias in two out of three cell lines in 100%, hypertriglyceridemia in 50%, hypofibrinogenemia in 50%, elevated ferritin in 66.
The main clinical findings include prolonged fever, hepatosplenomegaly, rapidly developing pancytopenia and increased transaminases, sudden decrease in erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), abnormal coagulation tests, hypofibrinogenemia, hypertriglyceridemia and hyperferritinemia.

It is characterized by persistent fever, pancytopenia, liver dysfunction, hepatosplenomegaly, hyperferritinemia, hypofibrinogenemia, elevated serum lactate dehydrogenase, and hypertriglyceridemia.
Platelets and cryoprecipitates must be transfused to manage thrombocytopenia and hypofibrinogenemia respectively.
Lyophilized fibrinogen concentrate (RiaSTAP) is approved by the US Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of congenital hypofibrinogenemia and also may be useful to replace fibrinogen in cases of AFE.
