Abstract

An 80-year old gentleman with very severe aplastic anemia was treated with standard combination therapy of equine antithymocyte globulin and cyclosporine A. His death shortly after treatment could be attributed to his advanced age, severe pancytopenia at diagnosis, absence of minor paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria clone and immunosuppressive therapy-related complications.
