Clinical summary


Imported from OMIM

Bone marrow failure syndrome-1 (BMFS1) is an autosomal dominant condition characterized by early-onset aplastic anemia or pancytopenia in some patients, and adult-onset myelodysplasia in others. Deafness or labyrinthitis also has been observed in affected individuals (Kirwan et al., 2012). Genetic Heterogeneity of Bone Marrow Failure Syndrome See also BMFS2 (615715), caused by mutation in the ERCC6L2 gene (615667) on chromosome 9q22; BMFS3 (617052), caused by mutation in the DNAJC21 gene (617048) on chromosome 5p13; BMFS4 (618116), caused by mutation in the MYSM1 gene (612176) on chromosome 1p32; BMFS5 (618165), caused by mutation in the TP53 gene (191170) on chromosome 17p13; BMFS6 (618849), caused by mutation in the MDM4 gene (602704) on chromosome 1q32; BMFS7 (AMEDS; 619151), caused by mutation in the ADH5 gene (103710) on chromosome 4q accompanied by a specific mutation in the ALDH2 gene (100650) on chromosome 12q24; and BMFS8 (ZHS; 620501), caused by mutation in the SLC30A7 gene (611149) on chromosome 1p21.
