Autoimmune haemolytic anaemia due to immunodeficiency


Autoimmune disorders are common presenting manifestations of immunodeficiency syndromes. We present a case of a woman in her late teens, with a history of frequent sinopulmonary tract infections during her childhood, who presented to our hospital with anaemia, jaundice and fatigue. She also had significant physical growth retardation for her age and sex. With this case report, we intend to present the diagnostic and therapeutic challenges faced by the patient and our healthcare system and propose a few feasible solutions to tackle these challenges.
