Abstract

This report concerns a young Indian woman with idiopathic auto-immune haemolytic anaemia. The erythrocytes repeatedly gave positive tests for the paroxysmal nocturnal haemoglobinuria abnormality, as well as positive antiglobulin tests. The possible reasons for this unusual association are discussed.
