Author information

  • 1Hospital Dona Estefânia, Lisboa, Portugal.


Cyclosporine-induced haemolysis is a very rare adverse reaction. The few published cases in the literature are described in the context of haemolytic-uraemic syndrome in transplanted patients. We report a case of cyclosporine-induced haemolytic anaemia in a 9-year-old girl being treated for severe dermatomyositis.
