Abstract

Autoimmmune cytopenia is an important but poorly understood clinical complication of chronic lymphocytic leukemia/small lymphocytic lymphoma. We review the pathogenesis, clinical presentation, and management of autoimmune hemolytic anemia, immune thrombocytopenia, and pure red blood cell aplasia in patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia/small lymphocytic lymphoma.
