I was tested for fanconi anemia as well. My dads brother died of leukemia at the age of 2 along with many other congenital defects such as club feet. Therefore, it was important to rule out genetic abnormalities. However, from my understanding, it should be absilutley routine to test for it in all cases of aplastic anemia. Although, I was told by my doc at the Mayo clinic that the treatment only changes in cases of BMT, although the survival rates are different because you are dealing with chromosomal abnormailites.
