Hematopoetic stem cell transplantation, even from an HLA 6/6 identical family member is associated with an increased frequency of complication in fanconi anemia (FA). The increased susceptibility for chromosomal breaks has been suggested as a contributory factor for increased risk of toxicity, graft versus host disease (GVHD) and increased incidence of post-transplant solid tumors. Therefore, non-irradiation based preparative regimens usually containing fludarabine and T-cell depletion of HLA genoidentical bone marrow cells have increasingly been used in patients with FA. Here, we report three children with FA who underwent CD-34 selected HSCT from HLA-identical family donors with reduced intensity fludarabine-based regimen.
