About Aplastic Anemia

Aplastic anemia is a failure of the bone marrow to produce blood as a result of the destruction of blood forming stem cells in the bone marrow. These stem cells normally develop into three types of blood cells; red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets. There are two types: acquired aplastic anemia is considered an autoimmune disease and most cases are considered idiopathic, meaning there is no known cause; hereditary aplastic anemia is passed down through the genes from parent to child, and usually have other genetic or developmental abnormalities. Fanconi anemia is the most common inherited form of aplastic anemia. Aplastic anemia can strike at any age regardless of race or gender. It is diagnosed more often in young adults and people older than 60. While aplastic anemia can be treated, the only cure is a bone marrow/stem cell transplant.
