bone marrow reduction in cellularity and patchy, problems with tongue

Hello my son is 14. He has had sustained bicytopenia affecting his neutrphils and platelets. Plus a white, pitted tongue that had occasional sores on it (since he was five). Because of this he had a bone marrow biopsy. The biopsy showed an unusual picture with reduction in cellularity down to 10% in some areas but normal in others. The aspirate with hypercellular with reduced myeloid and megakeyocytic activity. He has also had a recent ultrasound that showed a 'grainy' liver (he's not overweight) but his bloods have shown that his liver is functioning normally. He also has autism. At present, they do not know what has caused this but have ruled out leukaemia. Any input would be appreciated. thank you
