Auto anti-N is infrequently encountered and, in most reported cases,does not cause clinical hemolysis. This case reports an auto anti-N associated with severe hemolytic anemia (Hb = 2.7 g/dL) in a 6-year-old Caucasian girl with a history of vomiting, fever, and abdominal pain. Upon admission, she was found to have a metabolic acidosis,secondary to her severe anemia,with abnormal liver function tests. As in three other case reports,the autoimmune hemolytic anemia resolved,with disappearance of the auto anti-N, after corticosteroid therapy.
