Blood Diseases in Babies

There are many types of blood conditions, which can involve issues with red cell, white blood cells, platelets, blood vessels, bone marrow, lymph nodes, or the proteins associated with bleeding and clotting.

Pediatric blood disorders are a group of noncancerous illness, including bone marrow failure syndromes and hemoglobinopathies, which can impact the operating and quality of life of infants, children, and grownups. In some cases, these disorders can be dangerous.
