Diamond-Blackfan anemia (DBA) is a congenital pure red cell aplasia associated with congenital abnormalities and cancer predisposition. Allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) can correct the hematological phenotype and is indicated in transfusion-dependent patients. In 70 children reported to the German DBA and French HSCT registries, HSCT was performed from 1985 to 2017. Median age at HSCT was 5.5 years (range, 0.9-17.3 years). Two-thirds of patients (64%) were transplanted from a matched sibling donor (MSD), and most procedures were performed after the year 1999 (73%). Primary engraftment was achieved in all patients. One patient developed secondary graft failure. Cumulative incidence of acute graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) was 24% for °II-IV (95% confidence interval [CI], 16% to 37%) and 7% for °III-IV (95% CI, 3% to 17%); cumulative incidence of chronic GVHD was 11% (95% CI, 5% to 22%). The probability of chronic GVHD-free survival (cGFS) was 87% (95% CI, 79% to 95%) and significantly improved over time (<2000: 68% [95% CI, 47% to 89%] vs ≥2000: 94% [95% CI, 87% to 100%], P < .01). cGFS was comparable following HSCT from a MSD and an unrelated donor (UD). Of note, no severe chronic GVHD or deaths were reported following MSD-HSCT after 1999. The difference of cGFS in children transplanted <10 years of age compared with older patients did not reach statistical significance (<10 years: 90% [95% CI, 81% to 99%] vs 10-18 years 78% [95% CI, 58% to 98%]). In summary, these data indicate that HSCT is efficient and safe in young DBA patients and should be considered if a MSD or matched UD is available. HSCT for transfusion dependency only must be critically discussed in older patients.

Diamond-Blackfan anemia (DBA) is a rare inherited bone marrow failure disorder linked predominantly to ribosomal protein gene mutations. Here the European DBA consortium reports novel mutations identified in the RPL15 gene in 6 unrelated individuals diagnosed with DBA. Although point mutations have not been previously reported for RPL15, we identified 4 individuals with truncating mutations p.Tyr81* (in 3 of 4) and p.Gln29*, and 2 with missense variants p.Leu10Pro and p.Lys153Thr. Notably, 75% (3 of 4) of truncating mutation carriers manifested with severe hydrops fetalis and required intrauterine transfusions. Even more remarkable is the observation that the 3 carriers of p.Tyr81* mutation became treatment-independent between four and 16 months of life and maintained normal blood counts until their last follow up. Genetic reversion at the DNA level as a potential mechanism of remission was not observed in our patients. In vitro studies revealed that cells carrying RPL15 mutations have pre-rRNA processing defects, reduced 60S ribosomal subunit formation, and severe proliferation defects. Red cell culture assays of RPL15-mutated primary erythroblast cells also showed a severe reduction in cell proliferation, delayed erythroid differentiation, elevated TP53 activity, and increased apoptosis. This study identifies a novel subgroup of DBA with mutations in the RPL15 gene with an unexpected high rate of hydrops fetalis and spontaneous, long-lasting remission.
