Diamond Blackfan anemia (DBA) is a hypoplastic anemia (shortage of red cell production) that presents in early childhood as a moderate to severe anemia and many of the patients (40%) are transfusion-dependent for a lifetime. Practically all DBA patients have a mutation in one of the ribosomal protein genes. See our newly produced film about the disease.
