Abstract

The preliminary results of a prospective study of androgen therapy in the treatment of bone marrow insufficiency in children are reported. This study includes 11 children with the Fanconi syndrome, 21 idiopathic and 3 with toxic aplastic anaemia. Nine patients died early in the course of treatment. Impaired liver function was observed in 28% of patients and virilization in 37% of patients.
