Causes And Ways To Treat Evans Syndrome?
I want to ask, what is Evans syndrome? What cause? How is the treatment? and, can it recover?
Hello Sofieazhar, Thank you for your question.
Evans syndrome is one of the rare autoimmune diseases in which the immune system attacks red blood cells, white blood cells, and / or platelet cells. The exact cause of this condition is unknown. Symptoms experienced by sufferers depend on which blood cells are disturbed. Some of the symptoms of this syndrome can include fatigue, pale, dizziness, shortness of breath, palpitations, easy bruising, petechiae, bleeding that is difficult to stop, or experiencing fever (susceptible to infection). To diagnose this disease requires a blood test, spinal cord examination, and a number of other examinations. Handling this condition depends on the symptoms experienced by the patient, the severity, and the body's response to treatment. However, this condition cannot be cured. Treatments that can be given by a doctor can be in the form of blood transfusion, corticosteroid drugs, drugs that suppress the immune system, and immunoglobulins. The outcome of treatment varies greatly. Most sufferers have a good response to treatment but relapses often occur. Some patients can experience remission, which is a condition in which the patient has no symptoms at all or symptoms become lighter, but in some other patients it is not easy to achieve remission. If you experience this condition, please discuss / consult with your treating doctor about the right treatment steps for your condition.
Hopefully this information helps you.
