ABSTRACT

Aplastic Anaemia is a severe potentially fatal haematological syndrome, characterised by peripheral pancytopenia and bone marrow hypoplasia, with an occurrence rate of 2-6 cases per million per year. This case report is about a 9 year-old boy, with no pathological known antecedents, and a sudden onset, apparently without any pathological associated conditions, who was diagnosed with severe Idiopathic Aplastic Anaemia, and a fulminate evolution. The lack of compliance of the parents regarding the therapy, and also the lack of a protective child’s legislation, led to patient’s death in a very short time.
