Clinical features and laboratory and immunological workup was done and diagnosis was Evan's syndrome was made. Interventions: blood transfusion initially given to alleviate symptoms and corticosteroids were started. Outcome: with corticosteroids patient experienced dramatic improvement and patient is being followed up monthly and no remission is observed with the steroid doses being tapered.
