Heat stroke in strenuous exercises: a clinical case
Keywords:heat stroke, marathon, metabolic disorders, hyperthermia
According to the Association of International Marathons and Distance Races, more than 800 marathons are held annually in the world, but excessive physical activity during marathon races involves significant health risks. We would like to bring to your attention a case history of heat stroke in a young athlete during the half-marathon running, which manifested itself by heat damage to vascular endothelium of almost all organs, rapid development of disseminated intravascular coagulopathy, consumption coagulopathy, hyperfibrinolysis, multiple organ dysfunction syndrome involving the heart, lungs, liver, kidneys, gastrointestinal tract, brain, and bone marrow, which ended in death.
