Autoimmune hemolytic anemia (AIHA) is a form of hemolytic anemia in which red cells lysis occurs due to presence of an autoantibody. Association of AIHA is well known with lymphoproliferative disorders, especially with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. However, AIHA in association with Hodgkin's lymphoma is seen occasionally. Of the AIHA associated with Hodgkin's lymphoma, most are of warm type or mixed type. Cold AIHA, as seen in our case, is very rare in Hodgkin's lymphoma.
