Özet

Kasabach-Merritt syndrome (KMS) is a rare complication of cavernous hemangiomas characterized with anemia, thrombocytopenia, and consumption coagulopathy. This syndrome usually develops due to superficial soft tissue hemangiomas in infancy and childhood. KMS developing secondarily to hepatic hemangioma is very rare. In this report, we aimed to present the treatment of KMS developing secondarily to giant cavernous hemangioma of the liver with transarterial chemoembolization using bleomycin.
