Alloimmune hemolytic anemia is a rare complication following allogeneic organ transplantation. Despite that some other drugs have also been reported, in the majority of cases this complication has been associated with cyclosporine therapy. We here present a case of severe alloimmune hemolytic anemia clue to ABO minor incompatibility after renal transplantation in a patient treated with tacrolimus. Copyright (C) 2002 S. Karger AG, Basel.
