Aplastic anemia (AA) is a life-threatening bone marrow disorder caused by the autoimmune destruction of hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells (HSPCs). Currently, the condition is a diagnosis of exclusion, as there are no diagnostic tests specific to AA to differentiate it from other disorders, including inherited bone marrow failure syndromes (IBMFSs), which share similar symptoms. However, the process of excluding other diagnoses takes several weeks and can delay treatment, highlighting the need for a fast and accurate diagnostic test specific to the disorder.
