  ::  Abstract

Penicillin-induced immune haemolytic anaemia is very rare. A ten year-old-female with rheumatic mitral stenosis on benzathine penicillin prophylaxis presented with features of haemolytic anaemia and investigations supported the diagnosis of immune haemolytic anaemia. Patient responded to discontinuation of the drug and therapy with oral prednisolone. This is first such case reported from India.
