abstract

  • Why primary autoimmune hemolytic anemia (AHA) is more refractory to standard "frontline" treatment than immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) remains unclear. The response of AHA to steroids, splenectomy, and especially intravenous immuno-globulin is inferior to that seen in patients with ITP, making reliance on immuno-suppression more important. © 2011 by The American Society of Hematology.
