SummaryIn association with atypical pneumonia, a patient developed acute severe autoimmune hemolytic anemia. Hemoglobin temporarily was only 7.0 g/100 ml, so that the patient needed red blood cell (RBC) transfusion. Hemolysis was found to be caused by high titer cold agglutinins (CA), which occurred transiently during the acute period of the disease. CA of two different specificities, anti-I and anti-Fl, were demonstrated in the patient's serum. Antibodies of the two specificities were clearly… CONTINUE READING
