Author information

  • 1Department of Pediatrics, St. John's Medical College Hospital, Bangalore, India.


Fanconi's anemia is one of the inherited causes of bone marrow failure. It is inherited in autosomal recessive fashion. It presents as aplastic anemia usually at the age of 7-8 yr. Leukemias and solid tumours are complications in those who manage to survive beyond two decades. Though it has been seen in siblings, reports in monozygotic twins have been very few.
