To report novel mutations SEC23B gene in congenital dyserythropoietic anemia (CDA). By direct sequencing method, we sequenced CDAN1 and SEC23B genes in a Chinese CDA II patient, presented with chronic fatigue and dark urine, as well as his family members. Serum hepcidin was assayed by mass spectrometry. We found a c.71G>A mutation and a c.74C> A mutation in the patient. In addition, a heterozygous c.55A>G mutation of HFE2 gene was found in some family members. The level of serum hepcidin of the patient was below the detection limit (<1 nmol/L). Contrary with what have been reported previously in the Europe, especially in the Italy, the gene mutations identified in this case was different and novel. The two novel mutations contribute to the diagnosis of CDAII and are the first report in East Asian CDAII patients.
