Since its emergence more than three decades ago, HIV has become a major challenge to tuberculosis (TB) control efforts, especially in resource-limited settings. One of the most frequent complications of both HIV and TB disease is anaemia, a haematological complication. Andrew Kerkhoff characterises the relationship between anaemia and HIV-associated TB in South Africa.
