Type 1 Excludes Help
A type 1 excludes note is a pure excludes. It means "not coded here". A type 1 excludes note indicates that the code excluded should never be used at the same time as D60. A type 1 excludes note is for used for when two conditions cannot occur together, such as a congenital form versus an acquired form of the same condition.

  • red cell aplasia (acquired) (adult) (with thymoma)
Clinical Information
  • A disease characterized by normocytic, normochromic anemia, low hematocrit, reticulocytopenia and selective erythroid hypoplasia. It can occur as a chronic or acute form; the former is predominantly seen in adults and the latter in children. Pathogenesis involves immune dysfunction with antibodies directed against erythroid precursor cells or erythropoietin, or due to t-cell mediated suppression of erythropoiesis.
  • A rare disorder in which the bone marrow makes almost no red blood cells. It may be caused by infection or by certain drugs. Patients with this disorder may also have a thymoma (a tumor of the thymus) or an autoimmune condition such as lupus erythematosus or rheumatoid arthritis.
