Abstract

It appears to be necessary to consider, during a bone marrow transplantation, brothers and sisters who are donors. These children face psychological difficulties, which are not always understood by medical staff and families who are mainly concerned with the health of the sick children. Systematic meetings with a hundred donors point out the distress experienced in these situations.
