A 41-year-old woman, Philadelphia positive chronic myeloid leukemia patient, had progressive decline in hemoglobin levels. She had been receiving interferon alpha treatment for five years. Autoimmune hemolytic anemia was diagnosed. Subsequent bone marrow examination revealed translocation t(7;14). She was placed on prednisone treatment. The patient responded to prednisone as treatment for the hemolytic process. The result of a direct Coombs' test remained positive. The patient died shortly after the diagnosis of autoimmune hemolytic anemia. Autoimmune hemolytic anemia should be considered in the evaluation of chronic myeloid leukemia patients with a sudden decrease in hemoglobin levels.
