Ulcerative rectocolitis (UC) is an inflammatory bowel disease of unknown etiology that mainly affects the mucosa of the rectum and colon. Anemia is the most common hematological disorder in patients with UC and may be due to multiple causes such as blood loss, malabsorption, chronic illness and infection. We present a case report, in which UC and severe aplastic anemia (ASA) occur concomitantly, suggesting a common immune compromise between such pathologies.
