Can Coombs negative autoimmune hemolytic anemia be cured?
Hi Doctor, I have a nephew who is 2 years old now. After 6 months of his birth he was very week and frequently getting fever. So we consulted a nearby doctor. After all the diagnostic tests he was diagnosed as Coomb's Negative sutoimmune hemolytic anemia. He was transfused blood 4 times after the diagnosis. After that predisone has been started. He is on the same treatment even now. But he is prone to infections now. Is there any permanent solution for this condition?
Hi, dear. I have gone through your question. I can understand your concern. You have autoimmune hemolytic anemia. So your rbcs are destroyed by your own antibodies. To suppress this steroid is the drug of choice. You can go for splenectomy. It will improve your condition. Consult your doctor and plan out for surgery. Hope I have answered your question, if you have doubt then I will be happy to answer. Thanks for using health care magic. Wish you a very good health.
