Abstract

Fanconi Anemia (FA) is a rare genetic disease with a mutation in any of 22 FANC genes were known to date. Among all of FANC genes, most frequent mutation has been reported in FANCA gene worldwide responsible for about 60- 65% of all cases. In this case, we present a new missense mutation in FANCA gene in the Iranian population.
