Abstract

Anticipation of Fanconi's anemia prior to the development of overt marrow aplasia may prevent some morbidity and mortality from infectious and hemorrhagic complications. A presumptive diagnosis was made in a firstborn child with radial anomalies, small size, elevated fetal hemoglobin, intermittent excessive chromosome breakage and elevated T-antigen expression in fibroblasts infected with Simian virus 40. Serial studies may help identify infants and young children at risk to develop this type of constitutional marrow hypoplasia.
