Abstract

Introduction: Because of the variety of definitions used to describe moderate aplastic anemia (MAA), we review our institutional experience period with patients who met a proposed set of criteria for this disorder. On an exploratory basis, we sought to evaluate the influence of treatment with immunosuppressive therapy (IST) versus observation on long-term outcomes.
