Abstract

Haematological changes associated with infectious diseases are relatively common but true aplastic anaemia secondary to infection is rare. We describe a patient with disseminated Mycobacterium avium-intracellulare infection and who had a histologically proven remission of his aplastic anaemia accompanying antimycobacterial therapy. We also review the literature on the haematological changes associated with mycobacterial infections and other infectious causes of aplastic anaemia.
