What Is Fanconi Anemia And How Is It Diagnosed? Fanconi anemia (FA), named for Swiss pediatrician, Guido Fanconi, is one of the inherited anemias that leads to bone marrow failure (aplastic anemia). It is a recessive disorder: if both parents carry a defect (mutation) in the same FA gene, each of their children has a 25% chance of inheriting the defective gene from both parents. When this happens, the child will have FA.
There are at least seven FA genes: A, C, D2, E, F, G and BRCA2 (as announced in the article entitled Biallelic Inactivation of BRCA2 in Fanconi Anemia in the July 26, 2002 edition of Science ). Six of these genes have been cloned. These six account for more than 85% of the cases of Fanconi anemia. Mutations in FA-A and FA-C account for FA in 76% of patients worldwide. FA occurs equally in males and females. It is found in all ethnic groups. Though considered primarily a blood disease, it may affect all systems of the body. Many patients eventually develop acute myelogenous leukemia (AML). Older patients are extremely likely to develop head and neck, esophogeal, gastrointestinal, vulvar and anal cancers. Patients who have had a successful bone marrow transplant and, thus, are cured of the blood problem associated with FA still must have regular examinations to watch for signs of cancer. Many patients do not reach adulthood.

Fanconi Anemia
Fanconi Anemia
What is FA?
Fanconi Anemia (FA), first described in 1927 by a Swiss pediatrician Guido Fanconi, is the most common of the inherited anemias that lead to progressive, severe bone marrow failure, also known as aplastic anemia. The effects of the disease are devastating, leaving patients weak, prone to severe bleeding due to insufficient blood clotting and susceptible to infection. FA is a genetic disorder that occurs equally in males and females and is found in all ethnic groups. Though considered primarily a blood disease, it may affect all systems of the body. A Fanconi Anemia patient often, but not always, has other physical defects detectable at the time of birth ranging from minor to serious. Patients are also at an increased risk for developing leukemia and other cancers. Many children do not survive to adulthood. How is FA diagnosed? FA usually reveals itself when children are between the ages of 3 and 12, but in rare cases no symptoms are present until adulthood. Some babies are diagnosed at birth but some FA patients undoubtedly are never correctly diagnosed. The most common test to detect FA is called the Chromosome Breakage Test. The chromosomes in the cells of FA patients when studied in the lab, break and rearrange easily. Scientists do not yet understand the reason for this chromosome breakage, but can use it as a diagnostic test for the disease, if FA is suspected. This test involves just a blood sample from the patients where the stability of the chromosomes under the addition of destructive agents will indicate FA.

Fanconi Anemia (FA) is one of the inherited anemias that leads to bone marrow failure or aplastic anemia. If both parents carry a defect (mutation) in the same Fanconi Anemia gene, and if their children inherit the defective gene from both parents, the child will be born with Fanconi Anemia.
Signs and Symptoms
Fanconi Anemia may be evident at birth by a combination of the following physical traits:
  • Short stature
  • Thumb, arm and skeletal anomalies in the hips, spine and ribs
  • Kidney problems
  • Skin discoloration
  • Small head and eyes
  • Learning disabilities
  • Low birth weight
  • Gastrointestinal difficulties
  • Small reproductive organs in males
  • Heart defects
Children with Fanconi Anemia are usually diagnosed by age 12, when they may exhibit some or all of these symptoms:
  • Sudden and extreme fatigue
  • Recurrent infections
  • Frequent nosebleeds
  • Easy bruising
Long-Term Outlook
Fanconi Anemia usually becomes more severe over time. There is also a risk that some patients may develop leukemia or other

Welcome to the: "Fanconi Anemia Web" WEB SITE
Fanconi Anemia is a rare and terminal genetic childhood disease that results in death due to Bone marrow failure. See Tucker's "Tucker Time!" photo page My baby boy Tucker's fatal Fanconi Anemia diagnosis totally devastated and encompassed my life with despair...Never have I experienced such a profound weeping of my soul... The only way I Knew that I was going to be able to break the paralyzing depression I was in, was to try to turn my despair into Hope . By devoting myself to "Taking Action" And doing all I can to offer help and resources to others dealing with this heartbreaking disease, and to provide up to date access to medical documentation for Doctors, researchers, medical students and anyone seeking knowlege on this very rare genetic childhood disease. I pray there is a "Miracle" behind the tragedy of this disease...for it is well documented that researchers world wide are learning more and more that equal to the extreme rareness of Fanconi Anemia is counter matched by concentrated properties and similarities that with continued research could unveil a cure for cancer and Leukemia as well. That truly would be a breakthrough for all mankind not just the rare several thousand Fanconi Anemia cases reported globally. The urgency of continued research is also why I created this Web Site to generate a comradery of Fundraising efforts, volunteers and contributions to The Fanconi Anemia Research Fund. I also donate 20% of my web site design fee to the Research Fund as well at my other site:

Read the N.Y.
about Henry!

Publish Date June 30, 2001
Read Allen's Letters to Henry
Henry Strongin Goldberg was born on October 25, 1995. Henry knows all there is to know about Pokémon, believes that Disney World is the best place on earth, plays soccer, worships superheroes and wrestles with his younger brother Jack way past bedtime. Everything he does makes his parents smile. In these and so many other ways, Henry is a lot like other boys his age. But this lover of life and everything Batman is different from other kids because Henry has a horrible disease that threatens his life. After a scary and difficult five years of endless waiting rooms, doctor's visits, blood tests, EKG's, bone marrow aspirations, IV's, surgeries, transfusions, drugs, scars and a bone marrow transplant in July 2000 that met with innumerable complications, Henry faces a very uncertain future. This web site is dedicated to helping people learn more about what a special and brave young man Henry is and to educate everyone about the disease he is fighting, Fanconi anemia (FA). Through raising awareness and money for research and encouraging people to register to be a bone marrow donor, our family strives to give Hope for Henry and other children suffering from this killer. We welcome you to the site and encourage you to tell others about it and to bookmark this page so you can keep abreast of Henry's progress.

What is Fanconi Anaemia ?
Fanconi Anaemia is a rare disorder found in children that involves the blood and bone marrow. The symptoms include severe aplastic anemia , hypoplasia of the bone marrow, and patchy discoloration of the skin. This is an autosomal recessive condition, affected children usually develop severe aplastic anemia by age 8 to 9 years. Treatment usually consists of bone marrow transplant. Fanconi Anaemia is not a cancer, though recent research has shown an association between Fanconi Anaemia and leukaemia. There are 8 types of Fanconi Anaemia; known as complementation groups A through to H. Some definitions:
below normal levels of erythrocytes (red blood cells)
Aplastic anemia
anemia that is resistant to treatment; often accompanied by deficiencies of other blood cells.
incomplete / under development of a part of the body.
deficiency of all types of blood cells.
(genetics) if the required allele (a type of gene) is not present in both members of a pair of chromosomes then that allele is not expressed.

Among Ashkenazi Jews, the carrier frequencies and disease incidences for each of these has been estimated to be 1:25 and 1:3000 for Tay-Sachs disease; 1:30 and 1:3600 for cystic fibrosis; 1:40 and 1:6400 for Canavan disease; 1:15 and 1:900 for Gaucher disease 1:100 and 1:10,000 for Bloom syndrome , 1:30 and 1:3600 for Familial dysautonomia and 1:80 and 1:6,400 for Fanconi anemia. The Molecular Genetics Laboratory performs multiplex assays to screen for all seven diseases in individuals at risk. Note: This screen is most appropriate for people who are Ashkenazi Jews. This screen is not appropriate for individuals from other ethnic backgrounds. Those individuals should use other testing approaches to assess their carrier risk for these diseases. Contact the laboratory to determine appropriate testing for individuals of mixed heritage.
