Autoimmune hemolytic anemia (AIHA) occurs when antibodies directed against the person’s own red blood cells (RBCs) cause them to burst (lyse), leading to. Autoimmune hemolytic anemia (AIHA) is an uncommon disorder characterized by hemolysis mediated by autoantibodies directed against. Autoimmune hemolytic anemia is characterized by shortened red blood cell survival and a positive Coombs test. The responsible autoantibodies may be either.

Some of the patients with warm AIHA also possess a cold agglutinin. The reticulocyte count usually is elevated. A high-titer, high-thermal amplitude autoanti-B associated with acrocyanosis but no obvious hemolytic anemia.

Less commonly, it can be caused by concomitant autoimmune disorders. Severe hemolysis leading to renal failure or death has been reported [ 141516 ]. The male to female ratio aadlah Historically, alpha methyldopa and high dose penicillin were responsible for the majority of cases of drug-induced IHA.

Autoimmune hemolytic anemia: From lab to bedside

Serological characterization auotimun autoantibody helps to differentiate various types of AIHA and gives a better assessment to the clinician regarding the likely course of disease and the form of treatment to be given. Associated with ingestion of certain drugs e. Published online Jun Patients hemloitik present with acrocyanosis during the exacerbations. Cold agglutinin syndrome CAS Cold-reactive autoantibodies cause two distinct clinical entities: Chaplin H Jr, editor.


Cold-type AIHA usually reacts with antisera to complement and occasionally to the above antibodies.

Infection is a serious concern in patients on long-term immunosuppressant therapy, especially in very young children less than two years.

Journal List Blood Res v. Abstract Autoimmune hemolytic anemia AIHA is not an uncommon clinical disorder and requires advanced, efficient immunohematological and transfusion support.

This study reflects the heterogeneity in the disease characteristics of AIHA, which requires further validation in terms of clinical characteristics and treatment outcome to various drugs used in patients with AIHA. Cold agglutinin disease is treated with avoidance of cold exposure.

The lifetime of the RBCs is reduced from the normal — days to just a few days in serious cases. In the appropriate hemolihik setting, infectious mononucleosis, M. Clinico-hematological spectrum of 79 cases.

Usually, the antibody becomes active when it reaches the limbs, at which point it opsonizes RBCs. Treatment options for primary autoimmune hemolytic anemia: Although MeSH uses the term “autoimmune hemolytic anemia”, [5] some sources prefer the term “immunohemolytic anemia” so drug reactions can be included in this category.

All patients presented with symptoms of anemia; however, in secondary AIHA the symptoms of underlying disorders hemoltiik predominant.

Foreign Hemolytic disease of the newborn. Immune hemolysis in vivo begins with opsonization of red cells by autoantibody. Warm-type AIHA is usually a more insidious disease, not treatable by simply removing the underlying cause.

The immune haemolytic anaemias: Even patients with severe hemolysis may have only mild splenomegaly. A positive DAT reaction shortly following blood transfusion raises the specter of a delayed transfusion reaction, leading to an erroneous impression of an autoimmune process.

Most of the etiology of AIHA warm type was idiopathic or primary
