Fanconi Anemia (FA) is a rare autosomal recessive disease that is part of the chromosomal instability syndromes. In addition to their risk of hematologic malignancies, people with FA have a too high risk of developing a solid tumor. In this article, we report the case of a young patient with fanconi anemia who developed a malignant transformation into acute myeloid leukemia after one year from his diagnosis of fanconi anemia and during his allograft programming.
