Abstract

DiGeorge syndrome, an immunodeficiency disorder due to long arm microdeletion of chromosome 22. Isolated hemolysis is rarely seen in DiGeorge syndrome and is usually reported in conjunction with idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura. We report a case of DiGeorge syndrome with AIHA, which was successfully managed by intravenous steroids and intravenous immunoglobulins.
