Abstract

The incidence of AIHA in patients with rheumatoid arthritis has not been shown to exceed that in the general population. The prevalence of rheumatoid arthritis in patients with AIHA approximates that in the general population. On the basis of these data, it is extremely difficult to establish a relationship between AIHA and rheumatoid arthritis. The patient we have described had the unusual presentation of AIHA with rheumatoid arthritis. We believe the two remain distinct entities.
