5) in which 265 children with AIHA
were evaluated retrospectively, it was shown that 37% of patients had primary AIHA
, 63% had secondary AIHA
, previous infection was present in 10% of the cases of secondary AIHA
, and immunologic causes were present in 53%.
We are reporting the case of a 9-year-old boy with AIHA
who responded successfully to Rituximab.
If patient RBCs are only reacting with anti-C3 AHG, it typically signifies a cold reacting IgM class AIHA
, a drug-induced hemolytic anemia, or PCH.

, which is a rare, serious blood disorder where the immune system produces antibodies that result in the destruction of the body's own red blood cells, affects an estimated 40,000 Americans, for whom no approved treatment options currently exist.
The RBC autoantibodies can have varied clinical importance, ranging from insignificant to life-threatening AIHA
The real cause of AIHA
remains obscure and approximately 50% of all cases of autoimmune Haemolytic anaemia are idiopathic.
The new laboratory is staffed by employees from the parent company EMLab's AIHA
accredited San Diego facility.
will make samples of beryllium available to laboratories that analyze workplace samples.
All samples were analyzed by an AIHA
accredited lab using high pressure liquid chromatography as the method of analysis so the antibiotic captured on the test filters could be identified separately from other particulates.
The webinar will explore issues associated with early diagnosis and acute management of AIHA
, including the importance of strong collaboration between blood bankers and hematologists throughout the diagnosis and treatment of AIHA
