The prognosis depends upon the aetiology and severity of the disease:

  • pregnancy - 90% mortality
  • viral hepatitis - 60% mortality
  • thymoma - removal of the tumour may result in complete recovery
  • tuberculosis - successful treatment of the infection is associated with complete haematological recovery
  • severe aplastic anaemia has a less than 50% chance of survival beyond 6 months
