Conditions

From the beginning of care, through treatment, and into recovery, we provide an experience that’s right for children and families. Children’s National Health System provides a wide range of clinical services and specialties dedicated to improving children’s health.

Pediatric Anemia (hemolytic)

Hemolytic anemia is a disorder in which the red blood cells are destroyed faster than the bone marrow can produce them.

Pediatric Anemia (megaloblastic or pernicious)

Megaloblastic anemia is a type of anemia characterized by very large red blood cells. In addition to the cells being large, the inner contents of each cell are not completely developed.

Pediatric Anemia (aplastic)

Aplastic anemia occurs when the bone marrow produces too few of all types of blood cells: red cells, white cells, and platelets. 

Pediatric Beta Thalassemia (Cooley's Anemia)

Thalassemia is an inherited disorder that affects the production of normal hemoglobin (a type of protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen to the tissues of the body). Thalassemia includes a number of different forms of anemia.

Brain Tumors

Brain tumors are the most common solid tumors in children.

Pediatric Fanconi Anemia

Fanconi anemia is a blood disorder in which the bone marrow doesn't make enough blood cells or makes abnormal types of blood cells.

Pediatric Hodgkin Lymphoma

Hodgkin lymphoma is a type of cancer in the lymphatic system. The lymphatic system is part of the immune system and functions to fight disease and infections. The lymphatic system also helps maintain the fluid balance in different parts of the body by bringing excess fluid back into the bloodstream.

Pediatric Leukemia

Leukemia is the most common form of pediatric cancer. It affects approximately 3,250 children each year in the US, accounting for about 30 percent of childhood cancers. It can occur at any age, although it is most commonly seen in children between 2 and 6 years of age.

Pediatric Neuroblastoma

Neuroblastoma is a cancerous tumor that begins in nerve tissue of infants and very young children.
