IDIOPATHIC ANEMIA OF THE NEW-BORNA REVIEW OF THE LITERATURE AND A REPORT OF TWO CASES

Am J Dis Child. 1935;49(3):724-735. doi:10.1001/archpedi.1935.01970030170017
Abstract

In recent years there has come to be recognized a group of cases of severe primary anemia of the new-born. Attention was first drawn to this disease in 1919 by Ecklin,1 who described a case of severe primary anemia in a 12 day old infant who recovered seven months later. By 1931 Abt2 was able to collect reports of fifteen cases, which he completely reviewed, and Blackfan and his associates3 have reviewed a few cases reported since. So far as we are able to determine, thirty-nine cases have been described in the literature. The condition has been designated as "anemia of the new-born" or "congenital anemia."4 The cases of this type of anemia have been separated from a large group of cases of anemia to conform with Ecklin's original description.
