I should have mentioned that every patient would like to now what caused them to get AA, but unless they had a family history of AA, prior radiation or chemotherapy, or one of the known toxic exposures, the doctors usually don't know what caused it and the patient has only guesses. The cause rarely matters for making treatment decisions so doctors may answer a patient's questions about possible causes but probably won't investigate it as part of caring for the patient.
