Abstract

We report a case of cold autoimmune hemolytic anemia secondary to Mycoplasma pneumoniae in an 18 years old lactating mother presenting with respiratory symptoms and severe anemia. Her direct agglutination assay was strongly positive with marked IgG and C3d  titre and cold agglutination test was high titre with anti I specificity. Mycoplasma antibody titre by complement fixation was 1280. She was treated with Azithromycin and Predisolone for pneumonia and packed red cells for anemia.
