Bone marrow failure syndrome
The marrow inside our bones is responsible for making the blood cells our bodies need. When this process is interrupted or fails, it can cause a wide variety of health problems, some of which can be life threatening.
Because their bodies are still growing, children with bone marrow failure present more complicated cases than grownups and may be at higher risk for life-threatening complications. Here at Cook Children's we are dedicated to diagnosing and treating both the conditions that cause bone marrow failure in children, and those conditions that result from bone marrow failure. We are also actively involved in research programs to help prevent bone marrow failure and the resulting complications.
