abstract

  • A case of autoimmune haemolytic anaemia is described in which recovery, with disappearance of antibody, followed splenectomy and removal of an ovarian ;dermoid' cyst. A causal relationship between removal of the ovarian tumour and recovery is strongly suggested and the possible pathogenesis discussed. Fourteen previously recorded cases of this association are reviewed.
