We report a family with a dominantly transmitted syndrome resembling Fanconi's anemia and spanning two generations. This syndrome was characterized by an ill‐defined hematologic stem cell disorder, immune dysfunction, poor dentition, hyperpigmented skin, warts, and multiple second trimester spontaneous abortions and included one case of acute myelomonocytic leukemia (acute non‐lymphocytic leukemia, M4). This family lacks the characteristic chromosomal aberrations of Fanconi's anemia. We believe this constellation of findings represents an entity not previously described.
