Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


We report a patient who, while receiving probenecid and colchicine for acute gouty arthritis, developed severe hemolytic anemia in association with a generalized rash. The hemolysis was immune mediated as shown by a positive direct Coombs' test. In vitro hematologic studies showed that a probenecid dependent antibody was present.
