Two cases of familial erythroblastic (Cooley's) anemia, 1 of a girl 27 months of age and the other of a boy 4 years old, are reported and form the basis of a critical review of the disease. The important clinical and pathologic contributions to the literature are abstracted, and the pathologic observations as reported for each organ and tissue are summarized and discussed. In a final chapter, thirty basic characteristics of the disease are listed. Three fundamental features of the disease are (1) myelosis, (2) pathologic involvement of bone and blood and (3) hemolysis.
