Challenges in the care of Ewing ’s sarcoma in a Jehovah’s Witness patient

We present the case of a 34-year-old Colombian woman, Jehovah’s Witness, diagnosed with Ewing’s sarcoma with clinical stage IIB (T1N0M0) in the left maxillary and mandibular regions, treated with chemotherapy, who presented a hemoglobin nadir of up to 4.5 g/dL, and surgical indication as part of the treatment. In these patients, the transfusion decision has ethical implications that require therapeutic alternatives and a multidisciplinary approach.PMID:37167460 | DOI:10.7705/biomedica.6720
