Abstract: Congenital dyserythropoietic Anemias (CDAs) constitute a heterogeneous group of rare inherited disorders, characterized by moderate to severe anemia due to a markedly ineffective erythropoiesis with an erythroblastic bone-marrow and specific erythroid morphological anomalies. Three major types of CDA and a number of variants have been described. The diagnosis and categorization of these disorders are facilitated by microscopic examination of the blood and bone marrow and by serologic testing. The severity of anemia varies considerably within and between families. We report a case of CDA type I in a neonate who presented as congestive cardiac failure secondary to severe Anemia who also had PPHN due to LVF. Baby succumbed to death on day 1 of life itself. Clinical profile and laboratory investigations were consistent with CDA type I.
