The definition of Auto-Immune Hemolytic Anemia (AIHA) is an increment of anti erythrocyte antibodies (AEA) which mediate the destruction of circulating erythrocyte antigens. Antibodies develop against one's own erythrocyte antigens. Diagnosis of AIHA is made on the basis of auto-agglutination and direct anti-globulin test (DAT). The specificity of erythrocyte antibody is often difficult to identify especially in emergency. This study is based on a case of AIHA on a 62 years old female patient. She also had underlying hypothyroidism, diabetes mellitus and Hypertension.
