Anemia characterized by a decrease in the ratio of the weight of hemoglobin to the volume of the erythrocyte, i.e., the mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration is less than normal. The individual cells contain less hemoglobin than they could have under optimal conditions.

Monocyte-mediated antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity: a clinical test of monocyte function. (1/995)

The lack of a simple, rapid, and quantitative test of the functional activity of the monocyte has hampered studies of the contribution of this cell type to host defense and human disease. This report describes an assay of antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity, which depends exclusively upon the monocyte as the effector cell and therefore provides a convenient test of monocyte function. In this system, mononuclear leukocytes (MNL) obtained by Ficoll-Hypaque separation of whole blood are cytotoxic for 51Cr-labeled human erythrocyte targets coated with anti-blood group antibody. Removal of phagocytic monocytes from the MNL by iron ingestion, followed by exposure to a magnetic field, completely abolishes all cytotoxic activity from the remaining MNL population. Similarly, in severely mono-cytopenic patients with aplastic anemia, cytotoxic effector activity is absent. In normals and less severely monocytopenic aplastic anemia patients, cytotoxicity correlates significantly (p less than 0.001) with monocyte number. Application of this monocyte-mediated antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity assay to the study of patients with the Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome has revealed defective monocyte cytotoxic activity in spite of normal monocyte numbers, suggesting that this test may be useful for the assessment of monocyte function in a variety of clinical situations.  (+info)

Thymic selection by a single MHC/peptide ligand: autoreactive T cells are low-affinity cells. (2/995)

In H2-M- mice, the presence of a single peptide, CLIP, bound to MHC class II molecules generates a diverse repertoire of CD4+ cells. In these mice, typical self-peptides are not bound to class II molecules, with the result that a very high proportion of H2-M- CD4+ cells are responsive to the various peptides displayed on normal MHC-compatible APC. We show here, however, that such "self" reactivity is controlled by low-affinity CD4+ cells. These cells give spectacularly high proliferative responses but are virtually unreactive in certain other assays, e.g., skin graft rejection; responses to MHC alloantigens, by contrast, are intense in all assays. Possible explanations for why thymic selection directed to a single peptide curtails self specificity without affecting alloreactivity are discussed.  (+info)

Rapid autologous marrow recovery and eradication of infectious mononucleosis despite severe immunosuppression following second transplantation for aplastic anemia. (3/995)

A patient with aplastic anemia failed to respond to immunosuppressive therapy and first marrow transplantation (BMT).

Fungal prophylaxis by reduction of fungal colonization by oral administration of bovine anti-Candida antibodies in bone marrow transplant recipients. (4/995)

Candida overgrowth and invasion constitute a serious threat with a high mortality in BMT recipients. Currently available topical antifungal prophylaxis is largely ineffective, and as resistance to existing, absorbable drugs for systemic use is rapidly developing, new forms of therapy are needed. We investigated the effect of oral treatment of BMT recipients with a bovine immunoglobulin product derived from animals immunized against several Candida species. The natural Candida colonization was first followed in 19 patients to establish the colonization pattern. Half of the patients were found to be colonized prior to transplantation and altogether 72% were colonized at some point during follow-up. Those with a high pre-transplant concentration of Candida in saliva (>100 CFU/ml) remained colonized throughout the BMT treatment period. The therapeutic effect was monitored in two other patient groups. The first group consisted of nine patients, where, due to a low number of primary colonized patients, response in colonized patients was suggestive of a therapeutic effect. In the second group, 10 patients with a high level of colonization (>100 CFU/ml) were given 10 g daily of the product in three divided doses. The results suggest a treatment-related reduction in Candida colonization in a majority (7/10) of patients and one patient became completely negative. As no adverse effects were noted, our findings encourage additional studies in immunocompromised, transplant patients.  (+info)

Correction of bone marrow failure in dyskeratosis congenita by bone marrow transplantation. (5/995)

We report successful allogeneic bone marrow transplantation in two siblings with this disease from their sister, and their long term follow-up. We used reduced doses of cyclophosphamide and busulfan for conditioning instead of total body irradiation. Also, we report late adverse effects of transplantation which are not distinguishable from the natural course of disease.  (+info)

Prospective randomized multicenter study comparing cyclosporin alone versus the combination of antithymocyte globulin and cyclosporin for treatment of patients with nonsevere aplastic anemia: a report from the European Blood and Marrow Transplant (EBMT) Severe Aplastic Anaemia Working Party. (6/995)

We report the results of the first prospective randomized multicenter study of immunosuppressive treatment in patients with previously untreated nonsevere aplastic anemia (AA) as defined by a neutrophil count of at least 0.5 x 10(9)/L and transfusion dependence. Patients were randomized to receive cyclosporin (CSA) alone or the combination of horse antithymocyte globulin ([ATG] Lymphoglobuline; Merieux, Lyon, France) and CSA. The endpoint of the study was the hematologic response at 6 months. One hundred fifteen patients were randomized and assessable with a median follow-up period of 36 months; 61 received CSA and 54 ATG and CSA. In the CSA group, the percentage of complete and partial responders was 23% and 23%, respectively, for an overall response rate of 46%. A significantly higher overall response rate of 74% was found in the ATG and CSA group, with 57% complete and 17% partial responders (P =. 02). Compared with CSA alone, the combination of ATG and CSA resulted in a significantly higher median hemoglobin level and platelet count at 6 months. Fewer patients required a second course of treatment before 6 months due to a nonresponse. In the CSA group, 15 of 61 (25%) patients required a course of ATG before 6 months because of disease progression, compared with only 3 of 54 (6%) in the ATG and CSA group. The survival probabilities for the two groups were comparable, 93% (CSA group) and 91% (ATG and CSA group), but at 180 days, the prevalence of patients surviving free of transfusions, which excluded patients requiring second treatment because of nonresponse, death, disease progression, or relapse, was 67% in the CSA group and 90% in the ATG and CSA group (P =.001). We conclude that the combination of ATG and CSA is superior to CSA alone in terms of the hematologic response, the quality of response, and early mortality, and a second course of immunosuppression is less frequently required.  (+info)

Bone marrow transplantation for severe aplastic anemia: the Barcelona Hospital Clinic experience. (7/995)

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: The outcome of patients with severe aplastic anemia (SAA) has improved considerably over the last decades. Bone marrow transplantation (BMT) is the treatment of choice in young patients who have an HLA-identical sibling donor. This study analyzes the outcome and factors related to survival in patients with SAA receiving BMT in our institution. DESIGN AND METHODS: Between March 1978 and December 1996, 49 consecutive patients received an HLA-identical sibling marrow transplant for SAA. Median age was 21 years (range, 4 to 47) and 15 (31%) were women. Median interval from diagnosis to transplant was 2.6 months (range, 0.5 to 159). Between 1978 and 1982 all patients were conditioned with cyclophosphamide (CY) alone and received methotrexate (MTX) until day 102 as graft-versus-host disease (GvHD) prophylaxis. From 1983 most patients received CY and thoraco-abdominal irradiation (TAI) as the conditioning regimen and cyclosporin A (CSA) as GvHD prophylaxis. RESULTS: Survival probability at 10 years was 55 +/- 7% with a median follow-up for the surviving patients of 8.5 years. The incidences of graft failure, grade II to IV acute GvHD, and chronic GvHD were 21%, 39.5% and 31%, respectively. In multivariate analysis three factors adversely influenced survival: a) age > or = 30 years (p = 0.05); b) > or = 10 transfusion units pre-BMT (p = 0.008); and c) use of long course MTX for GvHD prophylaxis (p = 0.01). One case of squamous-cell carcinoma occurred in a TAI-treated patient 13 years post-transplantation. INTERPRETATION AND CONCLUSIONS: BMT is effective in young patients with SAA who have an HLA-identical sibling donor, particularly if minimally transfused pre-transplant. The introduction of TAI and CSA to our preparative regimen has led to a remarkably increased survival.  (+info)

Fusarium infections in patients with severe aplastic anemia: review and implications for management. (8/995)

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: The prognosis of severe fungal infections, such as fusarium infections, in patients with aplastic anemia is directly related to the recovery of bone marrow functions. In this study, in vitro anti-Fusarium activity of granulocytes was investigated, the case of disseminated infection in a child with very severe aplastic anemia is reported, and implications for management of such infective complications are discussed. DESIGN AND METHODS: The in vitro efficiency of PMNL from three untreated, normal blood donors and from two G-CSF-treated WBC donors in contrasting the growth of the Fusarium sp strain isolated from the patient we present was measured by a 3H-glucose uptake inhibition assay and confirmed by microscopic examination. RESULTS: Basic growth inhibitory activity of unstimulated PMNL on Fusarium cells was significantly enhanced in the presence of GM-CSF in all three blood donors tested. In one of the two G-CSF-treated donors, in vitro efficiency of PMNL in contrasting the growth of the fungus increased notably after G-CSF treatment. We report the case of a 3-year-old girl with very severe aplastic anemia unresponsive to conventional immunosuppressant therapy who developed a disseminated fusarium infection. The child initially responded to liposomal amphotericin B and granulocyte transfusions from G-CSF stimulated donors. Subsequently she was given a cord blood stem cell transplantation but died of disseminated infection. INTERPRETATION AND CONCLUSIONS: Including the present case, there are only ten reports of invasive infections caused by the genus Fusarium in aplastic anemia patients and only two of the patients survived. In vitro data seem to suggest that in vivo treatment with rh-G-CSF could have a stimulatory effect on the anti-Fusarium activity of neutrophils. Despite the efficacy of granulocyte transfusions by G-CSF-stimulated donors in the temporary control of fusarium infection, treatment of the underlying hematologic disease is required to cure the infection in patients with severe aplastic anemia. Granulocyte transfusions by G-CSF-stimulated donors while awaiting bone marrow recovery following the blood stem cell transplant should be considered.  (+info)

In the absence of an HLA-matched donor, the best treatment for acquired aplastic anemia patients refractory to immunosuppression is unclear. We collected and analyzed data from all acquired aplastic anemia patients who underwent a haploidentical transplantation with posttransplant cyclophosphamide in Europe from 2011 to 2017 (n = 33). The cumulative incidence of neutrophil engraftment was 67% (CI95%: 51-83%) at D +28 and was unaffected by age group, stem cell source, ATG use, or Baltimore conditioning regimen.

Aplastic anemia (AA) is a heterogeneous disorder. The distinction between acquired AA and hypocellular myelodysplastic syndrome (hMDS) is often difficult, especially non-severe AA. Definition of hMDS is based solely on morphological changes in blood and bone marrow. We postulated that somatic mutations are present in a subset of AA, and predict malignant transformation. From our database of 345 AA patients, we identified 150 patients with no morphological evidence of MDS, who had stored BM and constitutional DNA. We excluded Fanconi anemia, mutations
Severe aplastic anemia (SAA), characterized by pancytopenia and a hypocellular bone marrow, is effectively treated by immunosuppressive therapy, usually a combination of antithymocyte globulin (ATG) and cyclosporine (CsA). Survival rates following this regimen are equivalent to those achieved with allogeneic stem cells transplantation. However, approximately 1/3 of patients will not show blood count improvement after ATG/CsA. General experience and small pilot studies have suggested that such patients benefit from further immunosuppression. Furthermore, analysis of our own clinical data suggests that patients with minimal blood count responses to a single course of ATG, even when transfusion independence is achieved, have a markedly worse prognosis than patients with robust hematologic improvement.. The majority of the experience in the US and worldwide has been with horse ATG (h-ATG) plus CsA as initial therapy in SAA. Rabbit ATG (r-ATG) plus CsA has been employed successfully in about 1/3 of ...

Immunosuppressive therapy is a treatment for aplastic anemia patients who are not candidates for hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. The aim of the study to evaluate the frequency and severity of immunosuppressive therapy-induced hepatotoxicity in patients with aplastic anemia. The records of 27 patients with aplastic anemia who had eceived immunosuppressive therapy were received and determined for evidence of hepatotoxicity. The patients were divided into three groups. Group 1 was treated with antithymocyte/antilymphocyte globulin and cyclosporin A, group 2 received onl yyclosporin-A and group 3 was treated with antithymocyte/antilymphocyte globulin + cyclosporin-A and granulocyte macrophage colony-stimulating factor. All patients in group 1 had an initial increase in AST and ALT levels after therapy, but these tests abnormalities returned to normal in each case (p> 0.05). There was no detectable change in AST and ALT levels in group 2 (p>0.05). In group 3, five patients had an increase in ...
Aplastic anemia (AA) is a rare disorder characterized by the suppression of bone marrow function resulting in progressive pancytopenia. The pathogenesis of AA is complex and involves an abnormal hematopoietic microenvironment, hematopoietic stem cell/progenitor cell deficiencies, and immunity disorders. However, the underlying mechanism of the disease is still not fully uncovered. In this research, we collected both donor and patient samples and found suppressed proliferation, abnormal differentiation as well as increased apoptosis of patient mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). Considering the close relationship of parathyroid hormone (PTH) and MSCs differentiation, further studies showed that although patients maintained normal serum PTH level, their CD8+ T cells possessed lower PTH receptors. The insensitive to PTH of patients CD8+ T cells finally lead to reduced expression of key Wnt factors. In all, bone marrow CD8+ T cells may play an important role in inducing MSCs adipogenesis and ...

TY - CHAP. T1 - Aplastic Anemia. AU - Brodsky, Robert A.. AU - Jones, Richard. PY - 2006/12/1. Y1 - 2006/12/1. N2 - There are two types of aplastic anemia: congenital and acquired. The acquired form represents over 90% of cases and usually results from an autoimmune attack against hematopoietic stem cells. The most common clinical manifestations reflect the low blood counts and include dyspnea on exertion, fatigue, easy bruising, petechia, epistaxis, gingival bleeding, heavy menses, headaches, and fever. The primary diagnostic procedure, in addition to a complete blood count, leukocyte differential, and reticulocyte count is the bone marrow aspirate and biopsy. The clinical response of aplastic anemia to immunosuppressive therapy provides the first data suggesting that aplastic anemia is immune mediated. More recently, it has been shown that the bone marrow in aplastic anemia is infiltrated with lymphocytes that secrete Th1 cytokines. Skewing of the V? repertoires demonstrated by CDR3 ...
The above is an informational video that explains the basics of Aplastic Anemia & introduces you to a few of the people affected by it.). Symptoms of Aplastic Anemia. So What is Aplastic Anemia?. Medical Definition: Aplastic anemia is a degenerative bone marrow disease. It is a rare and serious condition in which the bone marrow stops producing enough platelets, red and white blood cells to keep the body healthy, resulting in an increased risk of infection and uncontrollable bleeding.. Parents Definition: A condition which causes your child to become sleepy, clingy and irritable. An instant crash course in at-home nursing for parents. Also known to make others think you abuse your children due to excessive bruising and bad attitude.. Aplastic Anemia (AA) is one of those diseases you never hear of until you or your loved one is diagnosed with it. There are around 300~400 cases diagnosed every year in the United States, around 1 in a million. It is a very serious condition that doctors are not ...
Aplastic Anemia What is aplastic anemia? Aplastic anemia occurs when the bone marrow produces too few of all three types of blood cells: red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. A reduced number of red blood cells causes hemoglobin to drop. A reduced number of white blood cells makes the patient susceptible to infection. And, a reduced number of platelets causes the blood not to clot as easily. What causes aplastic anemia? Aplastic anemia has multiple causes. Some of these causes are idiopathi...

OReilly APLASTIC ANEMIA DefinitionAplastic anemia is a disorder of hematopoiesis characterized by pancytopenia and a marked reduction or depletion of erythroid, granulocytic, and megakaryocytic cells in bone marrow. Hematopoiesis ( Chapter 160 ) is markedly decreased as shown by the near absence of myeloid elements and by the absence or low numbers of CD34 and colony-forming cells in bone marrow. In aplastic anemia, hematopoietic stem cells are unable to proliferate, differentiate, or give rise to mature blood cells and their precursors. In most cases, this failure of stem cells seems to result from an immune mechanism. EpidemiologyThe incidence of aplastic anemia in Western countries is about two new cases per 1 million persons per year. The incidence is higher in Asia, with almost four new cases per 1 million persons per year in
Aplastic anemia can strike any person of any age, gender or race, in any neighborhood, anywhere in the world. These life-threatening non contagious diseases affect thousands of men, women, and children every year.. In most cases, the cause of the disease is unknown. One known cause is an autoimmune disorder, where the white blood cells attack the bone marrow. Aplastic anemia occurs when the bone marrow stops making enough blood-forming stem cells. Patients with aplastic anemia typically have low blood cell counts in all three blood lines - red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. Upon examination, the bone marrow is found to be hypoplastic or aplastic, meaning low growth or no growth of blood-forming stem cells. Chromosomal abnormalities are not typically found in these instances.. Symptoms: The symptoms of aplastic anemia can include increased bleeding, bruising, petechiae, susceptibility to infections, and shortness of breath, fatigue, decreased alertness, dizziness and lingering ...
Aplastic Anemia describes a disorder of the clinical syndrome is marked by a deficiency of red blood cells, neutrophils, monocytes and platelets in the absence of other forms of bone marrow damage. Aplastic anemia is classified as a rare disease in developed countries the incidence of 3-6 cases / 1 million inhabitants / year. The exact cause of someone suffering from aplastic anemia also can not be established with certainty, but there are several sources of potential risk factors. Prognosis or course of the disease varies widely aplastic anemia, but without treatment generally gives a poor prognosis ...

SAN DIEGO-- Ligand Pharmaceuticals Incorporated (NASDAQ: LGND) announces the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) of the European Medicines Agency (EMA) adopted a positive opinion for Revolade® (eltrombopag), a Novartis product, for the treatment of adult patients with acquired severe aplastic anemia (SAA) who were either refractory to prior immunosuppressive therapy (IST) or heavily pretreated and are unsuitable for hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. SAA is a blood disorder where the bone marrow fails to make enough red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets3. Two out of every one million people in Europe and North America are diagnosed with aplastic anemia per year, a portion of which are severe cases4,5. The exact cause of the disease is still unknown, but most cases of SAA are believed to be triggered by an autoimmune reaction where the body attacks blood-forming stem cells located in the bone marrow3,6. As a result, patients with SAA are at risk for ...
Aplastic anemia is a type of anemia caused by failure of the bone marrow to generate new blood cells of all types. The condition, as the name indicates, involves both aplasia and anemia. Signs and symptoms may include: fatigue, shortness of breath with exertion, rapid or irregular heart rate, pale skin, frequent or prolonged infections, unexplained or easy bruising, nosebleeds and bleeding gums, prolonged bleeding from cuts, skin rash, dizziness and headache. Causes and Risk factors Aplastic anemia may occur suddenly, or it can occur slowly and get worse over a long period of time. Aplastic anemia develops when damage occurs to your bone marrow, slowing or shutting down the production of new blood cells. Factors that can temporarily or permanently injure bone marrow and affect blood cell production include: radiation and chemotherapy treatments, exposure to toxic chemicals such as benzene, use of certain drugs such as those used to treat rheumatoid arthritis and some antibiotics, autoimmune ...
Background. Transplantation from an HLA-identical sibling is the treatment of choice for young patients with acquired severe aplastic anemia. For the older patient, the acceptable upper age limit for transplantation as first-line treatment varies. So the current analysis sought to identify age or ages at transplantation at which survival differed. Design and Methods. We studied the effect of patient age, adjusting for other significant factors affecting outcomes in 1543 patients with severe aplastic anemia after HLA-identical sibling transplantation using logistic and Cox regression. Age categories (,20 years, 20-40 years ,40 years) were determined using Martingale residual plots for overall survival and categories based on differences in overall survival. Results. Patients aged ,40 years were more likely to have had immunosuppressive therapy, to have a poor performance score and a longer interval from diagnosis to transplant. Neutrophil recovery was similar in all age groups but patients aged ...

Can aplastic anemia be cured - Can aplastic anemia be cured? Possible. Aplastic anemia can be treated with immunosuppressive medications with resolution in a significant percentage of patients. Younger patients can be successfully treated with donor bone marrow transplants.
Immune-mediated aplastic anemia resembles other bone marrow disorders such as myelodysplastic syndrome, certain infections, and leukemia. Because treatment for aplastic anemia differs from management of other diseases affecting the bone marrow, it is critically important to distinguish between these disorders when a diagnosis of aplastic anemia is suspected. Therefore, children with persistently low blood counts should be evaluated by pediatric hematologists with expertise in diagnostics and treatment of these uncommon disorders ...
After several trips to the doctor, I was diagnosed with aplastic anemia in December 2002 (age 62) and received ATG treatment in January 2003. It has been a long road from diagnosis through treatment.

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: We previously reported that patients with acquired severe aplastic anemia (SAA) treated with antilymphocyte globulin (ALG), 6-methylprednisolone, cyclosporin A (CyA) and granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) can mobilize peripheral blood hemopoietic progenitors (PBHP). The aim of the present study was to assess phenotypic and functional properties of these PBHP. METHODS: We studied seven patients who underwent 43 leukophereses (median 5) between day +30 and +80 following ALG, while in treatment with CyA and G-CSF. Mobilized peripheral blood hemopoietic progenitors were analyzed using surface markers, conventional assays for clonogenic cells (CFU-GM, BFU-E, CFU-GEMM) as well as the recently developed assay for long-term culture initiating cells (LTC-ICs). RESULTS: The proportion of CD34+ cells ranged between 0% and 5.4% (median 0.3%), CD34+DR between 0% and 3.5% (median 0.1%) and CD8+ cells between 3.3% and 56% (median 31%). When light density mononuclear cells ...
The hypoproliferative anemias are normochromic, normocytic, or macrocytic and are characterized by a low reticulocyte count. Hypoproliferative anemia is also a prominent feature of hematologic diseases that are described as bone marrow failure states; these include aplastic anemia, myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), pure red cell aplasia (PRCA), and myelophthisis. Anemia in these disorders is often not a solitary or even the major hematologic finding. More frequent in bone marrow failure is pancytopenia: anemia, leukopenia, and thrombocytopenia. Low blood counts in the marrow failure diseases result from deficient hematopoiesis, as distinguished from blood count depression due to peripheral destruction of red cells (hemolytic anemias), platelets (idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura [ITP] or due to splenomegaly), and granulocytes (as in the immune leukopenias). Marrow damage and dysfunction also may be secondary to infection, inflammation, or cancer. ...

Aplastic anaemia is a bone marrow haemopoietic failure induced by a variety of causes, and its aetiology remains unclear thus far. It has been recognised that aplastic anaemia is associated with certain chemicals, drugs, radiation, and virus infections. Epstein-Barr virus and non-A, non-B, or non-C hepatitis virus precede aplastic anaemia in some patients with this disorder. However, little is known about the causal relation between parvovirus B19 infection and aplastic anaemia. In a recent report, a 14 year old boy with no obvious underlying disease who developed SAA following parvovirus B19 infection was described.3 In order to investigate the relation between parvovirus B19 infection and SAA, we studied the occurrence of parvovirus B19 DNA and antibodies in 30 cases of SAA, and found six cases associated with active or recent parvovirus B19 infection. The absence of detectable antibodies with positive B19 DNA in patient 6 may have occurred because of immunocompromise. There were no other ...

The symptoms improved after treatment with parenteral antibiotics. Conclusions: This case illustrates that necrotizing fasciitis must be ...
This double-sided model was produced to educate nurses about the clinical presentation of two blood conditions- chronic immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) and severe aplastic anemia (SAA). It is not uncommon for patients to relapse after initial treatment for these conditions, and therefore its important for healthcare professionals to easily recognize the signs and symptoms. A common symptom of both ITP and SAA is petechiae and purpura caused by intradermal hemorrhages, as shown in the skin block. The molded blood vessel wrapping around the model depicts key differences in blood cell counts, the underlying problem causing symptoms.. An important objective in developing this piece was to create a comprehensive model for two disease states that Novartis reps can carry around with them.

Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) associated lymphoproliferative disorder (LPD) after immunosuppressive therapy for aplastic anemia (AA) is extremely rare in a nontransplant setting and has not been well described. This report describes a severe AA patient in whom fatal EBV-LPD developed after being treated with rabbit antithymocyte globulins (ATG) and cyclosporine A (CsA). An 81-year-old man was diagnosed as having severe AA. He was started on CsA followed by administration of ATG for five consecutive days. One month after the start of ATG, persistent fever which was not responsive to antibiotics or antifungal agents developed and atypical lymphocytes emerged in peripheral blood. Repeated blood cultures were negative. An extremely high level of EBV virus in his peripheral blood plasma was detected by means of a quantitative real-time PCR assay. Even after the cessation of CsA, the fever persisted and the peripheral atypical lymphocytes proliferated rapidly. The patient suffered from respiratory failure, liver

Paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH) is a rare acquired, life-threatening disease of the blood. The disease is characterized by destruction of red blood cells (hemolytic anemia), blood clots (thrombosis), and impaired bone marrow function (not making enough of the three blood components). PNH affects 1-1.5 persons per million of the population and is primarily a disease of younger adults. The median age of diagnosis is 35-40 years of age, with occasional cases diagnosed in childhood or adolescence. PNH is closely related to aplastic anemia. In fact, up to 30% of newly diagnosed cases of PNH evolve from aplastic anemia. Similarly, the risk of developing PNH after treatment for aplastic anemia with immunosuppressive therapy (anti-thymocyte globulin and cyclosporine) is approximately 20-30%. The median survival after diagnosis is 10 years; however, some patients can survive for decades with only minor symptoms.. PNH occurs when mutations of a gene called PIG-A occur in a bone marrow stem cell. ...

The 11-year old girl presented a diagnosis of viral hepatitis A confirmed by anti-HVA IgM. Eight 8 weeks after, she developed hemorrhagic syndrome coupled with fever associated and persistent jaundice. The blood count showed aregenerative pancytopenia secondary to aplastic anemia confirmed by bone marrow biopsy. During conditioning for allogenic bone marrow grafts, the patient developed generalized seizures revealing disseminated intracerebral hemorrhage (pictures). There was a favorable outcome after blood transfusions and resuscitation. Hematological complications in hepatitis A are rare. Although intracerebral hemorrhage resulting from Hep A has never been reported in the literature; its occurrence is directly correlated with the degree of thrombocytopenia due to aplastic anemia. The prevalence of aplastic anemia in viral hepatitis is estimated at 0.1%. This complication implies systematic hematological evaluation in cases of viral hepatitis A; especially in severe forms or those associated ...

NSAIDs are often associated with GI bleeding if taken for long periods of time. Methotrexate is an immunosuppressant and has a labeled side effect of aplastic anemia, which is caused from suppression of the bone marrow leading to a decrease in the production of red blood cells. Plaquenil is also associated with aplastic anemia through bone marrow suppression.. In regards to autoimmune diseases - anemia of chronic disease is really common in those with rheumatoid arthritis. Inflammation in chronic inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and many other autoimmune diseases can affect blood production in a number of different ways. Many ...

Anemia idiopathic affects the body from the formation of blood cells in the process of coagulation. These related anemia diseases called idiopathic received this name due to its unknown origin, types of anemia idiopathic damage or destroy the stem cells which are then converted into red blood cells, as the case of aplastic anemia is idiopathic or idiopathic Myelofibrosis. Sideroblastic anemia makes the body unable to transform iron into hemoglobin, and idiopathic thrombocytopenia is the lack of an adequate number of platelets. Idiopathic diseases are not only limited to the blood, also can affect other regions of the body. Idiopathic, or hypoplasia aplastic anemia, is anemia that usually occurs when the bone marrow stem cells are injured or damaged. Less often, this type of idiopathic anemia occurs as result of damage to the vasculature of the bone marrow itself, therefore, inhibits the growth and the maturity of the red and white blood cells, along with platelets. Wells Fargo Bank oftentimes ...
