Program Description: Immune hemolytic anemia (IHA) is rarely drug-induced, therefore when it is caused by a drug-dependent antibody, laboratories and clinicians can struggle with identifying the issue. This boot camp will further the participant’s understanding of drug-induced immune hemolytic anemia (DIIHA), and how to identify a patient possibly experiencing this type of hemolytic anemia. DIIHA can mimic warm and cold autoantibodies so a discussion of the serologic findings and clinical information needed to differentiate them will be included. This program will also review different drugs known cause DIIHA and the importance of reviewing timing and dosage to further educate blood bankers/medical laboratory scientists and clinicians on what to look for in a patient medication history.
