In brief: Depends

There are various treatment options available including vitamin replacements (pyridoxine, folate), transfusions, toxin chelation, etc.
In cases associated with myleodysplasia or leukeami a bone marrow transplant can be potentially curable.

In brief: Maybe

Occasionally, the anemia is so severe that support with transfusion is required.
These pts usually do not respond to erythropoietin therapy. Some cases have been reported that the anemia is reversed or heme level is improved through use of moderate to high doses of pyrodoxine (vitamin b6). In severe cases of sba, bone marrow transplant is also an option with limited information about the success.
