Dyskeratosis congenita: a literature review


Dyskeratosis congenita is a rare hereditary disease that occurs predominantly in males and manifests clinically as the classic triad of reticulate hyperpigmentation, nail dystrophy and leukoplakia. It increases the risk of malignancy and other potentially lethal complications such as bone marrow failure, lung and liver diseases. Mutations in 19 genes are associated with dyskeratosis congenita, and a fifth of the pathogenic mutations are found in DKC1, the gene coding for dyskerin. This review aims to address the clinical and genetic aspects of the disease.
