Cancer related thrombotic microangiopathies usually cause a diagnostic dilemma for hematologists and clinicians. In this case report, we presented a fifty-nine-year-old man who was admitted to our hospital with microangiopathic hemolytic anemia and thrombocytopenia due to the carcinoma metastasis to the bone marrow. As a result of rapid evaluations, it was revealed that the histological subtype of the cancer was signet ring cell carcinoma, and despite all the interventions, the patient died at a very short time after the initial presentation. Regardless of all the innovations in the diagnosis and treatment of thrombotic microangiopathies, cancer-associated thrombotic microangiopathy is still fatal and deadly today.
