Some, but not all patients with idiopathic acquired aplastic anemia get long lasting remissions and are potentielly cured after treatment with antilymphocyte globulin (ALG) [10, 11]. This suggests that the diagnosis covers disorders of various origin. Since the pathogenesis is unknown, prediction of response to ALG is impossible.
