Aplastic anemia is a condition of impaired bone marrow production leading to variable degree of cytopenia/s. Idiopathic aplastic anemia accounts for most cases, with the remaining attributed to inherited or acquired etiologies. It is crucial for pathologists to trigger the relevant testing to identify potential causes of aplastic anemia, for appropriate treatment and surveillance.

This clinical pathology activity is intended for pathologists.

After completing this activity, you should be able to:

  1. Describe patient presentation of aplastic anemia.
  2. List various etiologies of aplastic anemia.
  3. Develop a stepwise diagnostic approach to aplastic anemia in pediatric and adult patients.
  4. Explain the role of bone marrow biopsy in the evaluation of aplastic anemia.
  5. Assess when requests for uncommon tests (eg, chromosomal breakage analysis, genomic testing) are appropriate.
