Abstract: Haemolytic anaemia due to an infection with Bartonella henselae
Thusfar, Bartonella henselae infection has not been identified as a large cause of autoimmune haemolytic anaemia.
In this paper, we present a patient with a Coombs negative autoimmune haemolytic anaemia. The anaemic episode was preceeded by a clinically non-specific infectious syndrome.
A positive serum titer of B. henselae antibodies disclosed a recent infection with B. henselae.
This case suggests that B. henselae can trigger secondary autoimmune haemolytic anaemia.
