Diamond blackfan anaemia (DBA) is an inherited bone marrow failure syndrome characterised by severe anaemia resulting in depletion or absence of erthyroid progenitor cells and haemopoesis. The pathophysiology of DBA is still undescribed. It is usually manifested in infancy but is not restricted to paediatric patients. Sometimes it might predispose to malignancy. In this paper, we present a single case of DBA with clear oral findings. This case report describes the medical importance of this condition and its risk in dental management (tooth extraction under local anaesthesia).
