Autoimmune hemolytic anemia (AIHA) associated with giant cell hepatitis (GCH) is a rare disorder in infants. Few cases have been reported and despite receiving a liver transplant, there is high mortality among patients. AIHA usually precedes the development of liver disease. Early recognition of this association and the administration of immunosuppressive therapy prevent progression of the disease.
