APLASTIC ANEMIA AND VIRAL HEPATITIS

APLASTIC ANEMIA AND VIRAL HEPATITIS Abstract To the Editor.—The recent case report, "Hepatitis and Aplastic Anemia," by Dr. Bodenbender (Amer J Dis Child 122:440-441, 1971), prompted us to report a similar case of aplastic anemia associated with viral hepatitis. Report of a Case.—A 14-year-old girl was admitted to the Hospital for Infectious Diseases for jaundice and classic symptoms of hepatitis in January 1971. At that time the hemoglobin level was 11 gm/100 ml and the white blood cell and platelet count were normal. She remained in the hospital for eight weeks and was treated with prednisolone for a period of two weeks. Her condition improved gradually and she was discharged from the hospital completely recovered; she remained well for about six weeks. A few days prior to her admission in Children's Hospital "Aglaia Kyriakou," May 5, 1971, she showed pallor and was complaining of weakness. At that time she had a carious tooth References 1.
