  •   Fanconi Anemia: Guidelines for Diagnosis and Management - These guidelines came out of a Consensus Conference held by the Fanconi Anemia Research Fund in 2013. This publication is for physicians who provide primary care for FA patients, as well as patients and families who wish to develop a more comprehensive medical understanding as they work to secure optimal treatment through consultation and appropriate referral. The guidelines are also available in Spanish, Italian, French, and Korean.
  •  SCC Fact Sheet - Regular screenings for oral cancer are critically important for FA patients.To help you communicate the urgency of this issue with health care professionals, we've prepared two flyers -- one for dentists and one for ear, nose and throat doctors (ENTs).The flyers include specific instructions about how to conduct a thorough oral cancer screening exam. We recommend that you take a flyer with you to every visit with your ENT physician and dentist. You can request color copies from our office or download the files in a variety of languages here.
