Abstract: Bartonella henselae is a hitherto unidentified cause of autoimmune haemolytic anaemia. Here we report a case of Coombs-negative autoimmune haemolytic anaemia. The episode was preceded by exposure to a cat and a non-specific infectious syndrome. Concomitant serum titres of B. henselae antibodies were indicative of a recent infection. The case report suggests that B. henselae infection can trigger secondary autoimmune haemolytic anaemia.
