A patient who underwent a transfusion due to an aplastic anemia subsequently experienced secondary hemochromatosis, which is very rare in Korea. The 56 year old female was admitted to our hospital with complaints of general weakness, fatigue, a brown-colored facial complexion, dyspnea upon exertion, and abdominal distension. Laboratory examination disclosed functional impairment of the liver and echocardiography revealed a congestive heart failure pattern. Gastrofiberscopy revealed brown colored gastric mucosa, and a fundal mucosa biopsy revealed a hemosidt pigment in iron stain. (Koreaa J Gastrointest Endosc 18: 889-892, 1998)
