Immune-mediated cytopenias in human immunodeficiency virus: the first reported case of idiopathic aplastic anaemia successfully treated with immunosuppression

, : Immune-mediated cytopenias in human immunodeficiency virus: the first reported case of idiopathic aplastic anaemia successfully treated with immunosuppression. Internal Medicine Journal 43(4): 452-455

Although isolated cytopenias are relatively common in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), the incidence of aplastic anaemia is extremely rare. We report here the first case of a HIV-infected patient who developed severe idiopathic aplastic anaemia, and who was safely and effectively treated with anti-thymocyte globulin and cyclosporin. We briefly review immune-mediated cytopenias in HIV, including their frequency, pathophysiology and management strategies.
