In brief: Aplasia, hypoplasia.

Absence (aplasia) or smallness (hypoplasia) of the forearm bones can be seen as isolated of syndromic findings in rare congenital anomalies.
Anemia (fanconi's) and thrombocytopenia (tar syndrome) can be seen in association with those defects. Etiology: idiopathic (unknown), trisomy 18, amniotic band sequence, vrious syndromes.
