A neuroblastoma is a rare, cancerous tumor that usually occurs in children under the age of 5.
Paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria is a rare, dangerous, acquired blood disorder during which unpredictable episodes of blood red cell breakdown occurs, the bone marrow stops making new blood cells and blood clots.
Polycythemia is a rare and serious blood disease that causes the bone marrow to produce too many red blood cells (adjusted for race, age, sex and altitude) to circulate in the blood stream.

Sickle cell disease is an inherited blood disorder in which red blood cells contain an abnormal type of hemoglobin.
Thalassemia is an inherited blood disorder in which there is less hemoglobin and fewer red blood cells in the body than is typical.
