    Description: Acquired aplastic anemia is a rare but potentially fatal bone marrow failure syndrome. Transplant with a matched sibling donor is the treatment of choice for severe aplastic anemia. But what should be offered to the majority of children and young adults who do not have this option? Is immunosuppressive therapy with ATG and cyclosporine safer and more effective than high dose cyclophosphamide? When should transplant with an alternative stem cell source be considered? And what new agents are being studied in children with newly diagnosed and refractory disease? Through several case studies we'll review best practice guidelines for managing children and adolescents with aplastic anemia including treatment selection, supportive care guidelines, and monitoring for complications of both the disease and therapies.
