Abstract

Paroxysmal Nocturnal Haemoglobinuria (PNH) is a rare disease. It is an acquired chronic haemolytic anaemia. It manifests as a triad of recurrent episodes of haemolysis, thrombotic episodes and pancytopaenia. A 32-year old gentleman presented with a history of gradually progressive generalized weakness. His clinical findings and laboratory investigations were suggestive of haemolytic anaemia and flow cytometry clinched the diagnosis of PNH.
