In brief: In general

The prognosis is fair to good.
Young patients with severe aplasia are taken to transplant with about 85% cure. Older patients are managed with immunosuppression and can also do quite well. Recurrent infections are of concern, and the supportive care options, especially for fungi, have improved in recent years.
