INFORMATION

What is Aplastic Anemia?

Aplastic Anemia is a rare, potentially serious and non-contagious bone marrow failure disease that occurs when the bone marrow stops making enough blood cells.

A person has three major types of blood cells -red cells, white cells, and platelets. Anemia results from reduced red cell production, infections are a result of reduced white cell production, and bleeding results from reduced platelet production.

Aplastic Anemia can occur at any age, in any gender and in any race of people.

Red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets are produced in your bone marrow, the red, spongy core of your bones. In aplastic anemia, the bone marrow is almost empty of blood forming stem cells and is described as hypoplastic or aplastic (Greek for low-or no-growth).

Red blood cells carry oxygen from your lungs to all parts of your body, and when you do not have enough red blood cells, your body can not get enough oxygen. It is very common to feel tired when this happens as your body is being deprived of the oxygen it needs.

When you have aplastic anemia, your bone marrow stops producing enough new blood cells. When you are not producing enough white blood cells, you also are more prone to disease and infection and when your blood does not produce enough platelets you do not clot effectively. Aaplastic anemia can lead to unstoppable bleeding. A simple cold or nose bleed can be quite dangerous to someone with aplastic anemia.

It is believed that aplastic anemia can be inherited or brought on by viral infection. It is also believed that cancer, chemotherapy, strong medications, pregnancy and exposure to toxic substances can bring on what is known as secondary aplastic anemia.

   ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:  
 

Symptoms:

In aplastic anemia, the quantity of each of the three blood cell types is much lower than normal, which leads to the symptoms that cause a physician to suspect the disease. These symptoms are unexplained infections (due to fewer white blood cells), unexpected bleeding (due to fewer platelets) and fatigue (due to fewer red blood cells).

Other signs and symptoms of aplastic anemia and secondary aplastic anemia may include:

  • Fatigue
  • Weakness
  • Shortness of breath without exertion
  • Rapid heart rate
  • Pale skin
  • Frequent infections
  • Unexplained bruising
  • Easy bruising
  • Nosebleeds and bleeding gums
  • Prolonged bleeding from cuts
  • Skin rash
  • Fever 

Diagnosing Aplastic Anemia

Doctors diagnose aplastic anemia through blood tests and a bone marrow biopsy.

Normally, red blood cell, white blood cell and platelet levels stay within a certain range. To confirm a diagnosis of aplastic anemia, a physician examines a blood sample to determine the number of each type of blood cell circulating in the blood.

Aplastic anemia is strongly suspected when two or three of the cell counts are extremely low. A definitive diagnosis is made if a marrow sample (a biopsy) shows a great reduction in the number of cells in the marrow itself.

To confirm a diagnosis of aplastic anemia, you'll need a bone marrow biopsy. In this procedure, a doctor uses a needle to remove a small sample of bone marrow from a large bone in your body, such as your hipbone.

The bone marrow sample is examined under a microscope to rule out other blood-related diseases. In aplastic anemia, bone marrow contains fewer blood cells than normal. The very few cells that are present, however, are normal. In diseases such as leukemia and myelodysplastic syndrome, the bone marrow is full of abnormal blood cells.

The initial diagnosis of aplastic anemia may be made by your doctor or at a local hospital. But for further evaluation and treatment, you'll likely be referred to a doctor who specializes in blood diseases (hematologist) or to a special treatment center for aplastic anemia.

Once you've received a diagnosis of aplastic anemia, you may need additional tests to determine an underlying cause.

Myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) are also rare, potentially serious and non-contagious bone marrow failure diseases. In MDS, the bone marrow stops making healthy blood cells and instead produces poorly functioning and immature blood cells. This means that individuals with MDS can have anemia, infection and bleeding. The bone marrow is usually described as hyperplastic or hypercellular, containing increased number of cells. A small percentage of MDS patients have hypoplastic bone marrow making the disease look similar to aplastic anemia. In some cases MDS will progress over time to become acute leukemia. MDS occurs at an increasing frequency with increasing age but can occur in children also.

Paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH) is a rare but potentially serious blood disease that can affect people of any age. Individuals with PNH acquire a defect in the most immature bone marrow cells, the stem cells, that leads to increased hemolysis, or destruction, of red cells in the blood stream, causing the urine to turn red or dark and causing anemia. There is also a tendency for increased thrombosis of veins in the abdomen leading to potentially fatal liver failure. The PNH defect can also occur without significant hemolysis or clotting. PNH may occur as an isolated disorder or PNH may occur in association with aplastic anemia and MDS.
