Immune Hematology Program
Some of the conditions we treat include:
- Autoimmune hemolytic anemia (AIHA)
- Immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) including chronic ITP
- Neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia (NAIT)
- Neonatal hemolytic anemia
- Thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP)
What makes our program so unique is that our team focuses solely on pediatric immune hematology. Our hematologists are experts in immune hematology and aim to provide the highest level of care available. We regularly provide consultations for local pediatricians and work closely with patients and families to ensure understanding of the diagnosis and treatment options. We have a comprehensive support staff to help with understanding and coping with symptoms.
Following the latest guidelines, we offer a full scope of care through the experts at Texas Children’s Hematology Center as well as throughout the 40 subspecialties at Texas Children’s Hospital. Working closely with rheumatology, immunology, genetics, Texas Children’s Newborn Center and pathology, we carefully monitor patients for development of other immune problems now as well as throughout their lives.
