Abstract

Fanconi anemia (FA) is a rare, genetically and phenotypically heterogeneous autosomal recessive disorder. It is characterized by various congenital malformations, progressive bone marrow failure usually at a very young age and of tumor development. The mean age of diagnosis was 7 years and the average life expectancy was 25 years. We report a rare case of fanconi anemia presenting as a solid tumor of buccal cavity and found to be metastasizing on staging at an unusually late age i.e. 52 years.
