We describe a patient who presented with autoimmune hemolytic anemia and small bowel obstruction secondary to a malignant stromal tumor (leiomyosarcoma) of the jejunum, 25 years postchemotherapy and radiation treatment for stage IIA Hodgkin's disease. The patient was treated with corticosteroid therapy and surgical resection of the jejunal tumor. We conclude that autoimmune hemolytic anemia may be an unusual presentation for postirradiation sarcoma. (C) 2000 by W.B. Saunders Company.
