We present a patient who was diagnosed as suffering from Fanconi anaemia at the age of 36 years. At the time of diagnosis his bone marrow showed features of pre-leukaemic transformation. He received an allogeneic bone marrow transplant (BMT) from his HLA-identical sibling. The post-transplant course was unremarkable with evidence of trilineage engraftment at day +32 and no acute or chronic GVHD. He is well with sustained engraftment and no haematological evidence of Fanconi anaemia 18 months post-transplant.
