Hello, all. I thought I would throw this out to see if we can get something started. I have been diagnosed with T-LGL Leukemia (see the rareshare forum on that disease), but at my last visit, my oncologist said that it could also be the very early stages of aplastic anemia. So with that in mind, I wanted to see what this forum might have. The treatments seem to be pretty similar, so I don't know that it makes much difference what I have. In fact, the oncologist said that it is quite possible that these two diseases and another (NPH) are all different expressions of a single underlying factor.

I too have t-lgl and my treatment with cyclosporine caused me to get aplastic anemia. My Dr seems to think a bone marrow transplant will cure both of them. So far I have tried methotrexate,cyclosporine, h-ATG, and neupogen and neulasta. I have been getting transfusions fairly regularly the last couple months.
