Abstract:

Patients with inherited bone marrow failure syndromes (IBMFS) such as Fanconi anemia (FA), dyskeratosis congenita (DC), and Diamond Blackfan anemia (DBA) can have hematologic manifestations cured through hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT). Subsequent late effects seen in these patients arise from a combination of the underlying disease, the pre-HCT therapy, and the HCT process. During the international consensus conference sponsored by the Pediatric Blood and Marrow Transplant Consortium entitled "Late Effects Screening and Recommendations Following Allogeneic Hematopoietic Cell Transplant for Immune Deficiency and Nonmalignant Hematologic Disease" held in Minneapolis, Minnesota in May of 2016, a half-day session was focused specifically on the unmet needs for these patients with IBMFS. This multidisciplinary group of experts in rare diseases and transplantation late effects has already published on the state of the science in this area along with discussion of an agenda for future research. This companion article outlines consensus disease specific long-term follow-up screening guidelines for patients with IMBFS.
