The separation of specific diseases from an amorphous mother group is a measure of medical progress. The purpose of the present report is to focus attention on one such specific entity in the hope that it may be diagnosed more frequently, inasmuch as it is one form of auto-immune hemolytic anemia (AHA) that is readily curable.1, 3, 4, 6
The mechanism of auto-immune hemolytic disease remains as elusive as ever.10, 11 In some cases, such as this one, the formation of antibodies against the patient's own red cells appears to be related somehow to the presence of a neoplasm.1, 9
