After hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT), patients may suffer from bleeding. One of the bleeding type is gastrointestinal (GI) which has serious morbidity and mortality in children with limited treatment options. Herein, we presented a child with upper GI bleeding post autologous HSCT controlled successfully by using recombinant activated factor VII (rFVIIa) and octreotide infusion.
