Description

Hereditary pure red cell anemia (HPRCA) is a rare, inherited form of anemia that is caused by a genetic mutation. It is characterized by a decrease in the production of red blood cells, resulting in anemia. Symptoms of HPRCA include fatigue, pale skin, shortness of breath, and an enlarged spleen. Treatment typically involves blood transfusions and medications to increase red blood cell production. In some cases, a bone marrow transplant may be necessary.
