Abstract:

Background: Severe bleeding is a leading cause of death among acute leukemia patients. For those patients with non-acute promyelocytic leukemia, Platelet Transfusion Refractoriness (PTR) often coincides with thrombocytopenia during the bone marrow suppression phase after chemotherapy, as this period is characterized by a high risk of bleeding in patients. Recombinant activated Factor VII (rFVIIa) has shown good therapeutic efficacy in diseases including hemophilia and thrombocytopenia, but it has not been widely used in patients with malignant hematological diseases. Methods: Here, we describe the case of a patient with gestational leukemia who developed PTR, but whose bleeding systems failed to improve after multiple treatments. This patient subsequently underwent treatment with rFVIIa. Results: Following the administration of rFVIIa, the patient’s bleeding stopped and they did not experience any adverse events. Conclusion: This case demonstrates that rFVIIa holds promise as a potential rescue treatment for use in patients with malignant hematological diseases experiencing severe bleeding accompanied by PTR.
