Abstract:

Objectives: To study clinical, biochemical, and molecular details of the patient suffering from Congenital Dyserythropoietic Anemia type II (CDAII), treated with a hematopoietic stem cell transplant. Methods: The 5-year-old patient having severe transfusion-dependent anemia was diagnosed with Congenital Dyserythropoietic Anemia type II (CDAII) based on light microscopic observation of bone marrow aspirate, biochemical tests, and molecular tests using Sanger sequencing. He underwent a Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant (HSCT) to treat CDA II. His clinical, biochemical, molecular, and mRNA transcript levels are studied before and after HSCT to understand the effect of HSCT. Results: The patient had transfusion-dependent severe anemia, pallor, weakness, and icterus. A molecular study identified c.1385 A>G, p.Tyr462Cys homozygous mutation in the SEC23B gene causing CDAII. This is the most common type of congenital dyserythropoietic anemia. mRNA transcript levels of SEC23B gene were significantly decreased in this patient who received Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant from HLA-identical siblings. On follow-up at 18 months after HSCT, he did not require transfusion, other clinical features are normal and mRNA transcript levels are the same as that of healthy controls. Conclusion: This study highlights the outcome of hematopoietic stem cell transplant on clinical, biochemical, molecular, and SEC23B gene expression levels in a patient suffering from congenital dyserythropoietic anemia type II in India.
