Aplastic anemia can be mild, moderate, or severe.
Mild or moderate aplastic anemia is serious but usually doesn't require hospitalization and may be treated with
Severe aplastic anemia, in which blood cell counts are extremely low, is life-threatening, and requires immediate hospitalization for treatment, which is usually a bone marrow transplant. Replacing diseased bone marrow with healthy bone marrow from a donor often successfully cures aplastic anemia.
