Penicillin prophylaxis is continued indefinitely in all children who have been splenectomized. Aplastic crisis Severe anemia can develop over several days due to shortened red cell survival without compensatory reticulocytosis. Reticulocytopenia can last 7 to 10 days. The primary cause of transient red cell aplasia is parvovirus B19, though it can follow other viral infections as well.

Indications Acute illnesses Splenic sequestration Transient red cell aplasia Hyperhemolysis (infection, ACS) Patients should be transfused if there is evidence of cardiovascular compromise (heart failure, dyspnea, hypertension, or marked fatigue). Generally, transfusion is indicated if the hemoglobin falls below 5 g/ dL or drops greater than 2 g/dL from the steady state. Sudden severe illness Acute chest syndrome Stroke Sepsis Acute multiorgan failure These life-threatening illnesses are often accompanied by a falling hemoglobin.
