The congenital dyserythropoietic anemias (CDAs) are a group of rare inherited blood disorders characterized by ineffective erythropoiesis as the principal cause of anemia. We present a child with CDA 1b-the rarest and least well-described type-due to a mutation in the C15orf41 gene. The patient presented with severe in utero and neonatal manifestations, typical peripheral limb anomalies as well as rarely reported cardiac manifestations, visual impairment, short stature, and hip dysplasia. Anemia was complicated by iron overload and pronounced extra medullary erythropoiesis leading to skull deformities. The patient responded to treatment with pegylated interferon alfa-2a.

We report a rare case of severe congenital dyserythropoietic anemia type 1 with fetal onset. Our patient presented with fetal hydrops from 19 weeks of gestation, requiring multiple intrauterine transf...
Congenital dyserythropoietic anemias (CDA) are characterized by hyporegenerative anemia with inadequate reticulocyte values, ineffective erythropoiesis, and hemolysis. Distinctive morphology of bone m...
Iron overload (IOL) due to transfusion-dependent anemia is a serious adverse effect in patients with myelofibrosis (MF). Recent studies have shown that the oral iron chelator deferasirox may prevent m...
The main cause of fetal anemia is maternal red blood cell alloimmunization (AI). The search of maternal antibodies by indirect antiglobulin test allows screening for AI during pregnancy. In case of AI...
The investigators propose the creation and maintenance of a comprehensive registry for patients with the diagnosis of Congenital Dyserythropoietic Anemia (CDA) in North America. The goal o...
The clinical symptoms of non transfusion dependent non severe aplastic anemia (NSAA) are often lighter than that of severe aplastic anemia. Clinical observation is often used and the treat...
The purpose of this study is to investigate whether lenalidomide would reduce the number of red blood cell transfusions needed by anemic (RBC transfusion-dependent) subjects with low or in...
To Document the Burden of Illness on the Quality of Life and the Impact on Healthcare Utilization in (Beta) β-thalassemia Subjects Who Are Transfusion Dependent (TD) and Non-transfusion Dependent (NTD) Receiving Standard of Care
This is a multi-site, prospective, observational study implemented in β-thalassemia treatment centers from 5 countries (Italy, Turkey, Greece, Lebanon, and Thailand). Approximately one to...
There is a paucity of data on management of non-acute postpartum anemia. Although blood transfusions were historically initiated with 2 units, the most recent recommendation from the Ameri...
A familial disorder characterized by ANEMIA with multinuclear ERYTHROBLASTS, karyorrhexis, asynchrony of nuclear and cytoplasmic maturation, and various nuclear abnormalities of bone marrow erythrocyte precursors (ERYTHROID PRECURSOR CELLS). Type II is the most common of the 3 types; it is often referred to as HEMPAS, based on the Hereditary Erythroblast Multinuclearity with Positive Acidified Serum test.
The type species of GYROVIRUS, a small, non-enveloped DNA virus originally isolated from contaminated vaccines in Japan. It causes chicken infectious anemia and may possibly play a key role in hemorrhagic anemia syndrome, anemia dermatitis, and blue wing disease.
A rare congenital hypoplastic anemia that usually presents early in infancy. The disease is characterized by a moderate to severe macrocytic anemia, occasional neutropenia or thrombocytosis, a normocellular bone marrow with erythroid hypoplasia, and an increased risk of developing leukemia. (Curr Opin Hematol 2000 Mar;7(2):85-94)
Hemolytic anemia due to various intrinsic defects of the erythrocyte.
The area of hematology that is concerned with the transfusion of blood and blood components, and in prevention and treatment of adverse effects from BLOOD TRANSFUSION errors.
Congenital conditions are those which are present from birth. They include structural deformities or loss of function in organs such as the <!--LGfEGNT2Lhm-->heart, gut or skeletal system. They can be corrected by <!--LGfEGNT2Lhm-->surgery, m...
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
