Microangiopathic haemolytic anaemia (MAHA) is a well recognized complication of disseminated carcinoma and its treatment. It is however, rarely seen with localized carcinoma. The case presented here is a previously unreported association of a patient, who having been successfully treated for MAHA, was found to have occult breast carcinoma on a routine screening mammogram six months after the haemolytic episode.
