Microangiopathic hemolytic anemia (MAHA) is a term which describes the association of hemolytic anemia with red cell fragmentation caused by microangiopathy mechanically. This paper reports a 45-year-old woman with bone metastases from breast cancer. She developed MAHA and disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC).
