Medication Summary

See the list below:

  • Treatment with corticosteroids and erythropoietin is unnecessary. Difficulty in distinguishing Diamond-Blackfan anemia (a corticosteroid-responsive condition) from transient erythroblastopenia of childhood (TEC) has led to corticosteroid treatment and subsequent resolution in some individuals with transient erythroblastopenia of childhood.

  • Whether these isolated reports are true incidents of corticosteroid-responsive transient erythroblastopenia of childhood or whether the anemia can resolve independently of corticosteroid treatment is unclear.
