Congenital dyserythropoietic anaemias (CDAs) are a group of inherited genetic disorders characterised by mild to moderate anaemia, ineffective erythropoiesis, and morphologic abnormalities of the erythrocytes and their precursors in the bone marrow. Three main types of CDA (CDA-I, CDA-II, and CDA-III) and a number of variants are known to date.
