ABSTRACT
The article discusses about renal fibrinocoagulaopathy in essential hypertension. A state of slow consumptive fibrinocoagulopathy has been demonstrated in adults with diabetes or atherosclerosis. Histologic evidence of the fibrinopathic vascular pathology has been provided by immunofluorescent demonstrations of large deposits of fibrin in atherosclerotic and diabetic vascular lesions. the role of renal ischemia in the pathogenesis of hypertension has been well established. While in cases of secondary renal hypertension, the accompanying pathologic changes in the kidneys provide the basis for the causative ischemia, in benign essential hypertension the definitive pathologic evidence is lacking.
