Cases of rare congenital forms of aplastic anaemia are presented. Fanconi anaemia is most frequently diagnosed, while reticular dysgenesis, amegakaryocytic thrombocytopenia and dyskeratosis congenita occur exceptionally rarely. A presumably new entity of congenital aplastic anaemia called "RAC" syndrome (retinopathy--aplastic anaemia--central nervous system abnormalities) is presented too. A short summary of the pathomechanism of congenital aplastic anaemias and present therapeutic attempts, including the possible therapeutic use of the newly discovered stem cell factor are described.
