Özet

Congenital dyserythropoietic anemias are a rare group of inherited anemias characterized by ineffective erythropoiesis and distinct morphological abnormalities in the erythroblasts. Interferon alpha has been shown to be effective in type 1 congenital dyserythropoietic anemia but the optimal duration of therapy is undefined. We present here a 32-years-old female patient diagnosed with type 1 congenital dyserythropoietic anemia precipitated by pregnancy and treated successfully with a short course of interferon alpha resulting in a durable response. A literature search including PubMed database on previously published articles regarding congenital dyserythropoietic anemia type 1 patients treated with interferon is conducted.
