Immune mediated haemolytic anaemia (IMHA), immune mediated thrombocytopenia (IMT), and IMHA/IMT combined (Evan's syndrome)
The seminar will review the presentation, pathophysiology, diagnosis and treatment of immune mediated haemolytic anaemia and thrombocytopenia in dogs and cats. The differentiation of these diseases from other causes of haemolytic anaemia and/or thrombocytopenia will also be discussed, with an emphasis on the use of appropriate laboratory tests.
