PEREIRA, Marco et al. Transient erythroblastopenia of childhood: “wait-and-see” approach. Nascer e Crescer [online]. 2012, vol.21, n.2, pp.110-112. ISSN 0872-0754.

Introduction: Transient erythroblastopenia of childhood (TEC) is an acquired, acute disorder, characterized by moderate to severe anemia and reticulocytopenia, secondary to a temporary suppression of red blood cell production. The etiology of TEC remains unknown, although an association with viral infections has been proposed. It is self-resolving and careful observation is the only medical support needed in most cases. Case report: The authors describe the case of a three-year-old girl who was admitted with an upper respiratory tract infection and TEC. Initial signs were anemia, with a 7.1 g/dl hemoglobin level and reticulocytopenia, without another hematologic abnormality. Spontaneous recovery occurred after three weeks. Conclusion: A better knowledge of this benign hematologic disorder of childhood, distinguishing TEC from other causes of non-regenerative anemia, can prevent unnecessary diagnostic procedures and treatment.
