Autoimmune hemolytic anemia

Linked here are two great review articles. This one addresses such questions as “What are the differences between warm and cold antibody hemolytic anemias?” “What is the difference between primary and secondary AIHA and what are some of the secondary causes?” “How can the ratio of conjugated to total bilirubin help differentiate between biliary disease and hemolysis as the cause of hyperbilirubinemia?”

This one discusses the pathophysiology of AIHA, explains the roles of antibody and complement, and explains why spherocytes are present in peripheral blood in AIHA.
