Anemia Fanconi (AF) is a rare disease, which bears the name of the famous Swiss paediatrician Guido Fanconi, who first discovered the disease. Congenital abnormalities of the eyes, ears, heart, absent or deformed kidneys, urogenital system are common. There is a delay in physical development. Intelligence in patients with Anema Fanconi is usually normal. The most serious problems with Fanconi anemia are associated with the gradual development of bone marrow disorders. Many patients with Fanconi anemia develop leukemia or myelodysplastic syndrome later, as well as other oncological diseases. Extreme susceptibility to squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck` and oral cancer is noted within patients with Fanconi anemia. The interdisciplinary team of medical and dental specialists must be included in the medical and dental treatment of patients with Fanconi anemia.
