TAR syndrome is a rare inherited autosomal recessive disorder with a mortality rate of 30-40% mainly as a result of haemorrhage, in the first year of life. Most of the infants recover from the effects of thrombocytopenia and associated haematological complications with the modern medical care. Very rarely, the outcome is fatal, with the occurrence of acute leukemias.
