A young child who was labelled as having 'Unknown Haemolytic Anaemia'

Dr. Mehmood-ul-Hasan

A female Afghani child of 7 years age presented with fever and jaundice since she was 3 years old. The symptoms were not continuous and appeared spontaneously without any apparent factor like drugs. She was transfused many a times. She had splenomegaly. There was no history of passing dark coloured urine.

As she was transfused a week ago when she presented, she was advised to come 6 weeks after transfusion.
