We report a case of a 15-month-old male donor who underwent bone marrow harvest procedure under general anesthesia. He had a complete HLA matched elder sibling with Aplastic Anemia. Approximately 800cc of bone marrow was harvested and transfused to the recipient. The procedure was uneventful with the donor recovering completely after this iatrogenic blood loss. The patient engrafted on day+20. Both patient and donor were discharged from the hospital without any complications.
