Hashimoto’s thyroiditis is a part of the spectrum of autoimmune thyroid disease and it is found to be associated with other autoimmune diseases like Addison’s disease, vitiligo, type1 diabetes mellitus, alopecia areata, pernicious anaemia etc. However its association with autoimmune haemolytic anaemia is uncommon. We reported a case of Hashimoto’s thyroditis associated with haemolytic anaemia who responded with thyroxine replacement and oral prednisolone therapy.
