Abstract

69-year-old man with a history of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) presented with severe acute hemolytic anemia 27 months after an autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. Bone marrow aspirate revealed intracellular micro-organisms (arrows) located within the cytoplasm of red blood cells confirming the diagnosis of severe babesiosis.
