The high mortality rate in aplastic anemia, despite modern supportive care and androgen therapy (1), has led to a recent recommendation for early bone marrow transplantation in this disease (2). In addition, it was suggested that blood products from family members be withheld for fear of sensitizing patients to "minor" transplantation antigens. It thus becomes important to identify those patients with aplastic anemia who may have a better chance for spontaneous remission if given optimum supportive care. VVe report the case of a patient with aplastic anemia during pregnancy who, after being supported with histocompatible platelets, achieved a complete remission
