VASCONCELOS, Rafael S. et al. Microangiopathic hemolytic anemia induced by tacrolimus and ciclosporine A. Rev. Bras. Hematol. Hemoter. [online]. 2008, vol.30, n.6, pp.505-506. ISSN 1806-0870.

We report a rare case of acute hemolysis in a patient after liver transplant for Child B cirrhosis caused by alfa1-antitripsine deficiency. History and laboratorial examinations indicated that the most probable cause of the hemolysis was the use of the immunosupressor tacrolimus and later Cyclosporine A. After the discontinuation of these drugs, there was improvement in the clinical condition of the patient, with a compensated hemolytic anemia.

Keywords : Microangiopathic hemolytic anemia; tacrolimus; transplant.
