Abstract

A case of autoimmune hemolytic anemia associated with myasthenia gravis in a 33-year-old female is presented. The association of autoimmune hemolytic anemia and myasthenia gravis is a very rare event, with only eight cases reported. The known association of these two diseases is reviewed. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case in which autoimmune hemolytic anemia preceded systemic myasthenia gravis.
