Aplastic Anemia Symptoms

Signs and symptoms of aplastic anemia and secondary aplastic anemia are caused by a shortage of one or more types of blood cells. Signs and symptoms may include:

  • Fatigue
  • Weakness
  • Shortness of breath with exertion
  • Rapid heart rate
  • Pale skin
  • Frequent infections
  • Unexplained bruising
  • Easy bruising
  • Nosebleeds and bleeding gums
  • Prolonged bleeding from cuts
  • Skin rash
  • Fever

In aplastic anemia, the quantity of each of the three blood cell types is much lower than normal, which leads to the symptoms that cause a physician to suspect the disease. These symptoms are unexplained infections (due to fewer white blood cells), unexpected bleeding (due to fewer platelets) and fatigue (due to fewer red blood cells).
