Hello,

Low hemoglobin, low total leukocyte count (TLC), low platelets with blastoma in the marrow, my first diagnosis is leukemia. Other possible causes are aplastic marrow due to a viral infection like Epstein–Barr virus (EBV), hepatitis b,c, bone marrow tumor, vitamin B12 deficiency.


Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
