Abstract

A 38-year-old alcoholic man with severe iron deficient anaemia, and bloody-mucous stool was found to have haemorrhoidal bleeding. In spite of intravenous iron supplements haemoglobin levels were falling. He was admitted because of deteriorating condition, jaundice, severe anaemia (haemoglobin, 38 g/l) and iron deficiency. Except of toxic (alcohol) agent all other causes of liver disease could be excluded. Sclero-, and medical therapy, and abstinency resulted in a rapid improvement in his condition and subsequently rectal bleeding also disappeared. Bleeding from the upper gastrointestinal tract is a well known and serious complication in liver cirrhosis, however, a voluminous blood loss resulting in a life-threatening anaemia from lower gastrointestinal tract or haemorrhoids, as it was detected in this patient, is quite rare. Sclerotherapy seems to be an effective method with only minor complications when compared with other invasive techniques. However, the patient's compliance even in liver cirrhosis with haemorrhoidal nodes is essential for a long-time success.
