About Symptoms of Fanconi Anemia
Your doctor may suspect you or your child has Fanconi anemia (FA) if you have signs and symptoms of:Anemia Bone marrow failure Birth defects Developmental or eating problems
FA is an inherited disorder – that is, it’s passed from parents to children through genes. If a child has FA, his or her brothers and sisters also should be tested for the disorder.
The most common symptom of all types of anemia is fatigue (tiredness). Fatigue occurs because your body doesn’t have enough red blood cells to carry oxygen to its various parts. If you have anemia, you may not have the energy to do normal activities.
