[Differential diagnosis of inherited bone marrow failure syndromes in erythrocyte disorders].

Asahito Hama

Rinsho Ketsueki 2022 ;63(6):590-599

Department of Hematology and Oncology, Children's Medical Center, Japanese Red Cross Aichi Medical Center Nagoya First Hospital.

Diamond-Blackfan anemia (DBA), congenital dyserythropoietic anemia (CDA), and inherited sideroblastic anemia (ISA) are representative diseases of inherited bone marrow failure syndromes in erythrocyte diseases. DBA is primarily caused due to ribosomal dysfunctions. Furthermore, reticulocytes and erythroid progenitor cells decrease considerably within the peripheral blood and bone marrow, respectively.

The Growing Spectrum of DADA2 Manifestations-Diagnostic and Therapeutic Challenges Revisited.

Front Pediatr 2022 14;10:885893. Epub 2022 Jun 14.

Department of Pediatric Oncology, Hematology and Clinical Immunology, University Hospital, Medical Faculty, Heinrich Heine University, Düsseldorf, Germany.

Deficiency of Adenosine Deaminase Type 2 (DADA2) is a rare autosomal recessive inherited disorder with a variable phenotype including generalized or cerebral vasculitis and bone marrow failure. It is caused by variations in the adenosine deaminase 2 gene (), which leads to decreased adenosine deaminase 2 enzyme activity. Here we present three instructive scenarios that demonstrate DADA2 spectrum characteristics and provide a clear and thorough diagnostic and therapeutic workflow for effective patient care. Read More

Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation rescue for severe pneumocystis pneumonia with the Macklin effect: a case report.

BMC Infect Dis 2022 Jun 27;22(1):577. Epub 2022 Jun 27.

Department of Emergency, Xiangya Hospital, Central South University, Changsha, Hunan, People's Republic of China.

Background: Pneumocystis jirovecii pneumonia (PJP) in an immunocompromised host is often associated with the Macklin effect, which can progress to spontaneous pneumomediastinum (SPM), subcutaneous emphysema (SCE), and pneumothorax (PNX). Diagnosing the causative organism of these conditions in non-HIV infected patients and treating hypoxemia while preventing further lung damage can be challenging. This study examines the case of a non-HIV infected male with SPM, SCE, and PNX secondary to severe Pneumocystis jirovecii (PJ) infection. Read More

Warm Autoimmune Hemolytic Anemia and Pure Red Cell Aplasia during a Severe COVID-19 B.1.1.7 Infection.

Infect Dis Rep 2022 Jun 2;14(3):413-419. Epub 2022 Jun 2.

Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry, University of Alberta, Edmonton, AB T6G 2R7, Canada.

Warm autoimmune hemolytic anemia (AIHA) is a rare complication of COVID-19 infection. We report a case of warm AIHA in a patient with COVID-19 pneumonia treated with methylprednisolone and several red blood cell transfusions. Despite treatment of the warm AIHA, the patient's reticulocyte count remained low, and his biochemical markers were suggestive of pure red cell aplasia, which was later attributed to a concurrent parvovirus B19 infection.

Background: Thymoma is the most common tumor of the anterior mediastinum, especially in adults, and accounts for 20-25% of all mediastinal tumors and 50% of anterior mediastinal tumors. Thymomas originating from thymus epithelial cells or lymphocytes are the most common, and account for 95% of thymomas. Thymoma is a relatively rare and inert disease of the chest, and many thymoma patients have a long survival period despite disease progression. Read More

A Persistent Parvovirus Infection Causing Anemia in an HIV Patient Requiring Intravenous Immunoglobulin Maintenance Therapy.

Cureus 2022 Apr 30;14(4):e24627. Epub 2022 Apr 30.

Hematology and Oncology, Jersey Shore University Medical Center, Neptune, USA.

Anemia is a common finding in a human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-positive patient with a wide range of possible causes and is a significant risk factor for mortality in acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). Opportunistic parvovirus infection-causing pure red cell aplasia is one of its uncommon causes. It has been suggested that immunocompromised patients with abnormal antibody production are more susceptible to acquiring a chronic parvovirus infection requiring long-term intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIg) treatment; however, there are no specific guidelines for it.

Hematology Unit, Istituto di Ricerca e Cura a Carattere Scintifico (IRCCS) Istituto Giannina Gaslini, Genoa, Italy.

Cartilage-hair hypoplasia (CHH) is a syndromic immunodeficiency characterized by metaphyseal dysplasia, cancer predisposition, and varying degrees of anemia. It may present as severe combined immunodeficiency in infancy, or slowly progress until fully manifesting in late adolescence/adulthood. No targeted treatment is currently available, and patients are usually managed with supportive measures, or are offered a bone marrow transplant if the clinical phenotype is severe and a suitable donor is available.

Mutations in RPS19 may affect ribosome function and biogenesis in Diamond Blackfan anemia.

FEBS Open Bio 2022 Jul 6;12(7):1419-1434. Epub 2022 Jun 6.

Sackler School of Medicine, Tel Aviv University, Tel Aviv, Israel.

Ribosomes, the cellular organelles translating the genetic code to proteins, are assemblies of RNA chains and many proteins (RPs) arranged in precise fine-tuned interwoven structures. Mutated ribosomal genes cause ribosomopathies, including Diamond Blackfan anemia (DBA, a rare heterogeneous red-cell aplasia connected to ribosome malfunction) or failed biogenesis. Combined bioinformatical, structural, and predictive analyses of potential consequences of possibly expressed mutations in eS19, the protein product of the highly mutated RPS19, suggest that mutations in its exposed surface could alter its positioning during assembly and consequently prevent biogenesis, implying a natural selective strategy to avoid malfunctions in ribosome assembly.

Lentiviral Mediated Gene Transfer Corrects the Defects Associated With Deficiency of Adenosine Deaminase Type 2.

Front Immunol 2022 22;13:852830. Epub 2022 Apr 22.

Infection, Immunity, Inflammation Department, University College London (UCL) Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health, London, United Kingdom.

Deficiency of adenosine deaminase type 2 (DADA2) is an autosomal recessive disease caused by bi-allelic loss-of-function mutations in . Treatment with anti-TNF is effective for the autoinflammatory and vasculitic components of the disease but does not correct marrow failure or immunodeficiency; and anti-drug antibodies cause loss of efficacy over time. Allogeneic haematopoietic stem cell transplantation may be curative, but graft versus host disease remains a significant concern. Read More

Incidence of Acquired Pure Red Cell Aplasia: A Nationwide Epidemiologic Analysis With 2 Registry Databases in Japan.

Blood Adv 2022 May 6. Epub 2022 May 6.

Shinshu Unversity Shool of Medicine, Japan.

Acquired pure red cell aplasia (PRCA) is a rare syndrome characterized by anemia with reticulocytopenia and a marked reduction in erythroid precursors. Given its rarity, the true incidence is largely unknown, and epidemiological data representing the general population, with a description of the full spectrum of etiologies, are scarce. An epidemiological study on PRCA in Japan conducted 30 years ago estimated the annual incidence as 0. Read More

Downregulation of SATB1 by miRNAs reduces megakaryocyte/erythroid progenitor expansion in preclinical models of Diamond-Blackfan anemia.

Exp Hematol 2022 Jul 20;111:66-78. Epub 2022 Apr 20.

Division of Hematology/Oncology, Department of Pediatrics, Stanford University, Stanford, CA. Electronic address:

Diamond-Blackfan Anemia (DBA) is an inherited bone marrow failure syndrome that is associated with anemia, congenital anomalies, and cancer predisposition. It is categorized as a ribosomopathy, because more than 80% or patients have haploinsufficiency of either a small or large subunit-associated ribosomal protein (RP). The erythroid pathology is due predominantly to a block and delay in early committed erythropoiesis with reduced megakaryocyte/erythroid progenitors (MEPs). Read More
