A rare, autoimmune disorder in which various types of auto-antibodies are directed against red blood cells causing their survival to be shortened and resulting in hemolytic anemia. AIHA can be primary idiopathic , secondary to infection or associated with diseases such as B-cell lymphomas, other systemic or organ-specific autoimmune diseases, Hodgkin's disease, hepatitis or primary immunodeficiencies, or, in the case of drug-induced AIHA, caused by a reaction to drugs.

The abrupt onset of hemolysis and the severity of anemia may sometimes be life-threatening and require admission to the intensive care unit.

Establishing the hemolytic mechanism of an anemia is rather easy, but finding its etiology can be quite difficult. The diagnosis of severe hemolytic anemia requires a rapid multiple-step procedure taking into account patient and family history, a careful analysis of the blood smear as well as the result of a direct antiglobulin test.

Maladie des agglutinines froides

Autoimmune hemolytic anemia is a rare condition in children which differs from the adult form. It is defined by immune-mediated destruction of red blood cells caused by autoantibodies. Characteristics of the autoantibodies are responsible for the various clinical entities. Classifications of autoimmune hemolytic anemia include warm autoimmune hemolytic anemia, cold autoimmune hemolytic anemia, and paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria. For each classification, this review discusses the epidemiology, etiology, clinical presentation, laboratory evaluation, and treatment options. Previous Article Editorial Board.

Auto-immune hemolytic anemia associated with IgA is uncommon. Case report. Direct antiglobin test was positive only for IgA class autoantibodies. He recovered with a high dose corticosteroid treatment. Corticosteroid treatment is most often successful. Moussalem, R. Sacy, N.
