Autoimmune hemolytic anemia with hgb 8.0/esr 80/hs-crp 8, crp 0.4. Normal ldh, reticulocytes. Treatment options for flares? On procrit (epoetin alfa) but not steroid

Hematology/Oncology. I have forwarded your question so hopefully a Heme/Onc will answer your question on here. You need to have the underlying cause determined and treated, steroids are mainstay of treatment, also splenectomy, IV gamma globulin, avoidance of cold, removal of any offending drugs that may cause it such as sulfa drugs, and treatment with cytotoxic drugs such as danazol. Plasmapheresis is often prescribed.
