    Includes
    • red cell aplasia (acquired) (adult) (with thymoma)
    Type 1 Excludes
    • congenital red cell aplasia (D61.01)

Approximate Synonyms

  • Acquired adult red cell aplasia with thymoma
  • Acquired pure red cell aplasia
  • Pure red cell aplasia, acquired
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.
ICD-10-CM D60.9 is grouped within Diagnostic Related Group(s) (MS-DRG v37.0):
