A whole-body CT scan found dysmorphic hepatomegaly and splenomegaly. Endoscopy revealed bleeding gastrointestinal angiodysplasia and non-bleeding oesophageal varices. After coagulation for angiodysplasia and blood transfusions, the Hb level remained around 8.5 g/dl. To investigate blood malignancy, a bone marrow biopsy revealed small-vessel vasculitis (Fig. 1A, 2), fibrinoid necrosis affecting the small vessel walls (Fig. 1A, 3), multinucleated giant cells (Fig. 1A, 1) constituting microgranulomas (Fig. 1A, 4) and...
