Diamond-blakfan anemia (DBA) is a rare condition in pediatric pathology, with more than 500 cases described in literature. It is a congenital eritroblastopenia, with AD/AR/ X-linkage inheritance, 90% were diagnosed by one year of age. Physical appearances were abnormal only in 29%. The current recommendations are corticosteroids, with suportive treatment and bone marrow transplantation. In general, DBA remains a single cytopenia. Long term prognosis remains uncertain, DBA is a preleukemia condition. We present two cases that we took care of in our clinics.
