Information on corona vaccination for aplastic anaemia
In a DGHO paper, Prof. Dr. Alexander Röth from the Essen University Hospital points out suspected cases in patients with aplastic anemia in connection with the SARS-CoV-2 (“Corona”) vaccination. At the West German Tumor Center (WTZ), relapses of the disease (recurrences) have been observed in 3 patients after vaccination. In 3 other patients, the number of blood platelets (thrombocytes) continued to fall, and 2 patients received the initial diagnosis of aplastic anemia shortly after the vaccination.
Patients with aplastic anemia should therefore consult their treating hematologist regarding (further) SARS-CoV-2 (“Corona”) vaccinations.
