We report on a 394delTT homozygous cystic fibrosis (CF) patient with severe disease progression. At the diagnosis made at the age of 2.5 months, he suffered from macrocytic anaemia as the most prominent symptom of CF, malnutrition, hypoproteinaemia and profound hypoalbuminaemia, but demonstrated only minimal pulmonary symptoms. Abnormal sweat chlorides confirmed the diagnosis of CF. Severe pulmonary and liver disease caused death after 6 years.
