Breath-holding spells occur disproportionately more often in children with transient erythroblastopenia
. Acta Paediatr 2016; 105(9); 1088-93.
In recent literature, some cases of association between KS and thymoma have been reported, most of them with cytopenia secondary to the thymic neoplasm (either pure red cell aplasia, erythroblastopenia
, CD4+ lymphopenia, or Good syndrome--combined B and T cell immunodeficiency).
of childhood (TEC) can occur after viral infections.
Most cases of childhood primary acquired PRCA include transient erythroblastopenia
of childhood (TEC).
A bone marrow biopsy sample indicated isolated erythroblastopenia with no abnormality of other cell lineages (PCR for parvovirus B19 was negative).
Detection of the measles genome and isolated erythroblastopenia in the bone marrow biopsy sample is consistent with reports that measles virus can infect erythroid progenitors and interfere indirectly with hematopoiesis (7,8).

This disorder is characterized histologically by erythroblastopenia
in an otherwise normally appearing bone marrow (see Figure 1).
of childhood (TEC) is a temporary, acquired disorder that creates a normochromic, normocytic, reticulopenic anemia.
Mutations in this gene cause Diamond-Blackfan anemia (DBA), a constitutional erythroblastopenia
characterized by absent or decreased erythroid precursors in 25% of the patients.
