What is wAIHA?
Warm autoimmune hemolytic anemia, or wAIHA, is a rare disease that affects about 45,000 people in the United States. People of any age, including children, may develop wAIHA, but it is more common in adults and may be slightly more common in women than men.
wAIHA is a type of autoimmune disease that occurs when antibodies, which normally protect the body by destroying harmful organisms, attach to red blood cells and identify them as targets to be attacked.
Red blood cells carry oxygen throughout the body, so when they are damaged or destroyed, the body doesn’t get enough oxygen, which leads to a condition known as anemia.
