Abstract: Background. There is no standard treatment for patients with severe anemia who refuse blood transfusion or cannot receive red blood cells. Case report. After an orthotopic liver transplantation, an elderly Jehovah ’ s Witness who refused blood transfusion presented with severe acute anemia with hemorrhagic shock. The calculated red blood cell loss was near 70%. Associated with surgical treatment and sup- portive measures, the patient was treated with high-dose erythropoietin and ferric carboxymaltose. Results. The patient presented a rapid increase in hemoglobin concentration and retic- ulocyte count with resolution of hemorrhagic shock after the proposed pharmacologic treatment combined with local hemostatic measures. She was transferred to a low-risk unit 4 days after transplantation and was discharged from the hospital on day 10. The hemoglobin concentration was normal 35 days after the bleeding event. Conclusion. This case demonstrated that a protocol with high-dose erythropoietin and ferric carboxymaltose may be an option for patients with severe anemia who refuse blood transfusion or cannot receive red blood cells
