|Abstract:||We report on the use of red cell exchange in a case of severe intravenous immune globulin induced hemolysis and pigment nephropathy. Renal impairment and hemoglobinuria were not ameliorated by supportive measures including hydration. Partial red cell exchange with group O blood reduced hemoglobinuria and appeared to stabilize renal function. This is the first report on the use of red cell exchange in this clinical setting. J.
