Eleven patients with typical features of Fanconi's anemia with cytogenetic studies were evaluated. Cytogenetic abnormalities was seen in all but one patient. Two patients had acute non-lymphoblastic leukemia (ANLL) and nine had Fanconi's anemia (FA). All patients with FA responded to oxymetholone and are well with a median follow up of 38.6 months. Both patients with ANLL died. This study stresses the need of an accurate cytogenetic analysis in FA patients along with a clinicohematological correlation.
