Red Blood Cell Disorders

Red blood cell disorders are blood disorders that impact the red blood cells, the parts of the blood that carry oxygen from the lungs to all parts of the body. Treatment of red blood cell disorders, the most common of which is iron deficiency anemia, depends on the condition affecting the cells.

Patients with Red Blood Cell Disorders are treated through Dana-Farber/Boston Children's Cancer and Blood Disorders Center, an integrated pediatric hematology and oncology partnership between Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Boston Children’s Hospital.
