Recurrent acquired sideroblastic anemia in a twin pregnancy.
Impey L., Greenwood C., Taylor A., Redman C., Wainscoat J.
A woman whose sideroblastic anemia had relapsed with progestogen and combined oral contraceptive therapy suffered further relapses in a (twin) pregnancy. Previous reports exist of relapses both from progestogens and in pregnancy, and we postulate a shared etiology. Affected women considering pregnancy or sex hormone usage should be advised accordingly.
