Abstract

ABSTRACT

 Tuberculosis is usually treated with multiple drugs and these drugs are known to cause various side effects like hepatic abnormality, skin rashes, peripheral neuropathy, and vision disturbances. Autoimmune hemolytic anemia is very rare with antituberculosis drugs with only fifteen cases reported till date worldwide. Hence, we report a case of Rifampicin induced autoimmune hemolytic anemia in a patient, a known case of Gilbert’s syndrome from a tertiary care hospital in Southern India.
