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.

The hemolysis is self-limited, lasting weeks [ 3 ]. Patients with cold-type AIHA, therefore, have higher disease activity when body temperature falls into a hypothermic state. Patients with mixed-type AIHA have a chronic course interrupted by severe exacerbations, which can result in qutoimun anemia at times.

The constitutional symptoms and hemoglobinuria generally last a few hours. Petz LD, Garratty G. Thromboembolic episodes are relatively common during active phases of the disease, aytoimun associated with anti-phospholipid antibodies [ 555657 ]. In adults, most of the cold-reactive antibodies are agglutinins of the IgM isotype. Autoimmune hemolytic anemias with both cold and warm autoantibodies. Efficacy of treatment depends on the correct diagnosis of either warm- or cold-type AIHA.


Most of the cold autoantibodies are directed against I antigen and I antigen negative donor units are extremely rare, so red cell transfusion may potentiate hemolysis.

Death may result from infection or severe anemia or sometimes from an underlying lymphoma. Support Center Support Center.

Drugs can produce hemolysis by both immune and non-immune mechanisms. Articles from Blood research are provided here courtesy of Korean Society of Hematology. Oxford, Blackwell Science,p However, the choice of second or further-line therapies hsmolitik depend on the clinician’s personal experiences and opinions. Clinical and serological characterization of autoimmune hemolytic anemia in a tertiary care hospital in North India.

Transfusing AIHA patient is a challenge to the immunohematologist as it is encountered with difficulties in ABO grouping and cross matching requiring specialized serological tests such as alloadsorption or autoadsorption.

Diagnosis and treatment of autoimmune hemolytic anemia: classic approach and recent advances

Specificity of acquired haemolytic anaemia autoantibodies and their serological characteristics. Complement fragments, such as C3a, C4a and C5a, activate granular leukocytes e.

RBC transfusion would be an effective supporting treatment option as a bridge therapy. Those who recover from the initial hemolytic episode have a good prognosis and are unlikely to relapse, although exceptions occur. N Engl J Med. A positive DAT acalah shortly following blood transfusion raises the specter of a delayed transfusion reaction, leading to an erroneous impression of an autoimmune process.

Immune hemolytic states are those, both anemic and nonanemic, which involve immune mechanisms consisting of antigen-antibody reactions. Autoimmune haemolysis associated with Donath-Landsteiner antibodies. Autoimn haemolytic anaemia – a high-risk disorder for thromboembolism? Diagnosis is made in the laboratory by the findings of anemia, reticulocytosis, a positive Coombs test, and specific serologic tests.
