Answer

In severe cases with of paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH) with an aplastic phase, referral to a bone marrow transplantation center is indicated for possible allogeneic bone marrow transplantation. Umbilical cord stem cell transplantation from the patient's own cord blood, from a related donor, or from the registry for HLA–matched unrelated donors may be an option in pediatric patients.
