Abstract

As the world of medicine and nursing advance, children with once terminal childhood diseases are now surviving into young adulthood. Nurses must learn to care for pediatric patients who transition to adulthood. This article explores Diamond Blackfan Anemia, once considered a terminal childhood disease that can now be a disease of young adulthood.
