Obsolete term for an autoimmune haemolytic aneamia with extremely variable clinical features. A disturbance usually occurring in children with a recent history of infection. The anaemia is associated with fever, lethargy, abdominal pain, nausea, and vomiting. Massive haemolysis is indicated by anaemia, jaundice, and haemoglobinuria. Spherocytosis and splenomegaly are frequently associated. Slightly more prevalent in females.
