A prepubescent 11 year-old girl came to our attention for short stature. Auxological evaluation showed peculiar phenotype. In order to exclude Turner syndrome standard karyotype was performed with normal result. Because of anemia and selective deficiency of the erythroid lineage further investigations were performed and a diagnosis of Blackfan-Diamond anemia was made.
