Microangiopathic hemolytic anemia (MAHA) originates from a mechanical injury of red cells, caused by vascular thrombosis or stenosis. Cancer is a cause of MAHA as a consequence of both chemotherapy and disseminated disease itself. Here we describe the case of a 60-year-old man who developed a signet-ring cell carcinoma originated from the intrahepatic bile ducts, complicated by bone marrow metastasis and MAHA.


KEY WORDS: Anemia - Bile ducts - Carcinoma - Stomach neoplasms
