AIH and Aplastic Anemia
I have a 13 yr old daughter that was diagnosed with Autoimmune Hepatitus 9 months ago.  After treatment with Prednisone, she appears to be doing very well.  During one of her blood tests though, her WBC count was alarmingly low.  Her RBC and platelets were also low.  After a few months of monitoring this, she was diagnosed with Aplastic anemia - after a bone marrow biopsy. I understand that certain viral hepatitus can cause this but my hemotologist and G.I. Specialist said a link could not be made with the AIH.  I think it is too coincidental that two pretty rare idiopathic conditions could happen and not be linked in some way.  Do you think there a connection?
