A 38-year-old female in the reproductive age group presented with anaemia in a resource-poor setting. The patient was given multiple transfusions during the course of her treatment. After a proper work-up she was diagnosed with Coomb's negative autoimmune haemolytic anaemia (AIHA). She was later treated with steroid and she showed significant improvement. Early diagnosis in her case at the primary care level with other causes of anaemia in mind could have prevented unnecessary transfusions and morbidity. Proper history and approach to anaemia is the key in a resource-poor setting.
