Abstract

A case of autoimmune anti-c̄ hemolytic anemia was observed in a cadaveric renal transplant recipient treated by cyclosporine. Severe anemia had been preceded by an episode of cholangitis followed within a few days by a viral infection. Anemia improved after three plasmaphereses and after cyclosporine therapy was substituted by azathioprine and steroid doses were increased. It is hypothesized that cyclosporine withdrawal may have favored the improvement of hemolysis by favoring the suppression of antibody-producing cells.
