Abstract

A 70-year old woman presented to our hospital with a one month history of diffuse abdominal pain, vomiting, nausea and some diarrheic episodes alterning with constipation. She reported a personal history of autoimmune hemolytic anemia under cortisone for one year. Clinical examination was negative. Her laboratory tests except for the expected anemia (hematocrit 26%) revealed elevated inflammation signs (WBC: 15300, ESR: 122 and CRP: 231) and LDH (590 U/l) and a positive direct Coombs test for IgG antibodies
