Evans Syndrome Handout
Here is a handout about Evans Syndrome. Evans Syndrome is a rare autoimmune disorder where the body's immune system destroys red and white blood cells, as well as platelets. People with Evans Syndrome may experience Thrombocytopenia, a condition where the blood has too few platelets, and Coombs' positive Hemolytic anemia, a condition in which red blood cells are destroyed prematurely. Though Evans Syndrome is rare, occurring in 1 out of roughly 80,000 people in the U.S.(including children), it still has greater effects on those who have it. There is currently no cure for the disorder, and those affected usually fall through periods of (being sometimes very intense in nature) exacerbation and remission, which can be very hard on the body. Children's quality of life can be very negative with Evans Syndrome, making it hard for them to develop socially, emotionally, and physically. Learn more details from this handout now!
