The Bone Marrow Failure Clinic at
Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center provides highly sophisticated and
comprehensive multidisciplinary care for children with bone marrow failure
Bone marrow failure happens when
your bone marrow no longer makes enough blood cells. It can be caused by
something that happens to you during your lifetime (such as chemotherapy) or you
can be born with it. A variety of inherited diseases cause bone marrow failure.
The clinic offers evaluation,
diagnosis and treatment for all types of bone marrow failure syndromes. Among
the conditions we see are:
This inherited disorder causes the bone marrow to produce too few platelets in the blood. Platelets are needed for blood to clot.
All types of blood cells are low. Patients may have an increased risk of infection, fatigue and shortness of breath and bruise and bleed easily. The disease might be the result of an autoimmune disorder (when the body’s immune system fights itself), but the cause it not known.
This disease affects the pancreas, skeleton and bone marrow. It makes it difficult to absorb nutrients from food and commonly causes low white blood cell counts, making it hard for the body to fight infection.
The care team works closely with the Molecular Genetics Laboratory at Cincinnati Children’s, which offers genetic testing for inherited bone marrow failure syndromes.
