Fanconi anaemia

What is Fanconi anaemia? 

Fanconi Anemia is a rare, genetic blood disorder that leads to bone marrow failure.

The disorder prevents your bone marrow from making enough new blood cells for your body to work normally. It can also cause your bone marrow to make faulty blood cells which can lead to serious health problems.

Children who inherit Fanconi Anemia are at higher risk of being born with birth defects.

How do we help children who have Fanconi anaemia? 

The Sydney Children's Hospital Network provides comprehensive disease-specific multidisciplinary care at The Children's Hospital at Westmead to manage this complex chronic disease.
