Fanconi Anemia, Complementation Group B; Fancb

Description

Fanconi anemia (FA) is a clinically and genetically heterogeneous disorder that causes genomic instability. Characteristic clinical features include developmental abnormalities in major organ systems, early-onset bone marrow failure, and a high predisposition to cancer. The cellular hallmark of FA is hypersensitivity to DNA crosslinking agents and high frequency of chromosomal aberrations pointing to a defect in DNA repair (summary by Deakyne and Mazin, 2011).Patients with FANCB mutations often present with multiple additional congenital anomalies, including the constellation of features designated VACTERL-H, for vertebral defects, anal atresia, tracheoesophageal fistula, esophageal atresia, radial or renal dysplasia, and hydrocephalus. Many patients with these features die in early infancy before developing anemia (McCauley et al., 2011).For additional general information and a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of Fanconi anemia, see {227650}.
