Aplastic anaemia, Biology

Aplastic Anaemia 

Aplastic anaemia is a condition in which production of red cells in the bone marrow is reduced. It involves failure to produce adequate red cells, white cells, and platelets. 


This can be classified as: 

1)  Idiopathic aplastic anaemia: This constitutes 50 per  cent of  the cases. Its cause is unknown. 

2)  Acquired (secondary) aplastic anaemia: This is due  to drug  toxicity or sensitisation, e.g. chloramphenicol, sulphonamides, Phenylbutazone, and antimitotic  drugs. 

3)  Aplastic anaemia associated with multiple congenital defects: This  is hereditary and accompanied by skeletal, eye, heart, kidney, genital and other pigment abnormalities.
