Eryptosis is characterized by cell membrane scrambling with phosphatidylserine exposure to the erythrocyte surface [1]. Chelating agents (D-penicillamine, trientine) are used as first-line therapies for symptomatic patients, but there are few data from large cohorts [2]. No complications were encountered during the operation or in the postoperative period [3]. Phosphatidylserine-exposing erythrocytes are recognised by macrophages, which engulf and degrade the affected cells [4]. These complications represent a wide array of etiologies, often presenting complicated diagnostic options [5].
