diamond blackfan anaemia is.?Health Question & Answer

Whey be very careful if you have this kind of illness because Diamond-Blackfan Anemia (DBA) is a congenital erythroid aplasia that usually presents in infancy. DBA patients have low red blood cell counts (anemia). The rest of their blood cells (the platelets and the white blood cells) are normal. A variety of other congenital abnormalities may also occur.

This is the way for the Treatment:

Corticosteroids can be used to treat anemia in DBA.In a large study of 225 patients, 82% initially responded to this therapy, although many side effects were noted. Some patients remained responsive to steroids, while efficacy waned in others. Blood transfusions can also be used to treat severe anemia in DBA. Periods of remission may occur, during which transfusions and steroid treatments are not required. Bone marrow transplantation (BMT) can cure hematological aspects of DBA. This option may be considered when patients become transfusion-dependent because frequent transfusions can lead to iron overloading and organ damage. However, data from a large DBA patient registry indicated that adverse events in transfusion-dependent patients were more frequently caused by BMTs than iron overloading.

Good Luck! Take Care of Yourself!
