Abstract: Ataxia-telangiectasia (AT) is an autosomal recessive syndrome of combined immunodeficiency. Hallmarks of the disease comprise progressive cerebellar ataxia, oculocutaneous telangiectasia, cancer susceptibility and variable humoral and cellular immunodeficiency. We describe a patient with AT presenting with autoimmune haemolytic anaemia, neutropenia, hepatosplenomegaly, lymphadenopathy and hyper-IgM at the age of 6 months. At the age of 26 months she developed persistent fever, progressive lymphadenopathy and pulmonary nodular infiltrates, which were responsive to steroid therapy.
