Aplastic anemia


Aplastic anemia means a definite diagnosis of a chronic persistent bone marrow failure, confirmed by biopsy, which results in anemia, neutropenia and thrombocytopenia requiring blood product transfusion, and treatment with at least one of the following:

  • marrow stimulating agents
  • immunosuppressive agents
  • bone marrow transplantation.

The diagnosis of aplastic anemia must be made by a specialist.
