Gemahsis' devastated mother Tamar Srondy has told how her young boy was diagnosed with a disease called dyskeratosis
congenita - rare and progressive bone marrow failure syndrome.
3) reported a case of Graphium basitruncatum fungemia in a two-year-old child with dyskeratosis
congenita who underwent stem cell transplantation two months prior to infection.
congenita, palmoplantar keratoderma, lupus erythematosus, dermatomyositis and atopic dermatitis have been associated with PLCA.
Other general features include: Asteatosis (absence of sebaceous glands), normal general mental development, dry skin, nail dystrophy, palmoplantar dyskeratosis
, decreased sebaceous and nasal secretions, lack of dermal ridges, and fragile-appearing skin.
congenita or Zinsser-Cole-Engman syn-dromeis is a rare inherited bone marrow failure syndrome (IBMFS) characterized by diagnostic triad of reticulated skin hyperpigmentation, nail dystrophy, and oromucosal leukoplakia (1).
A telomerase component is defective in the human disease dyskeratosis
On the other hand studies were done on dyskeratosis
congenital and ataxia telangiectasia and it was found that these patients did not show atherosclerosis.
An extensive variety of cutaneous conditions bearing a resemblance to CARP were considered in the differential diagnosis, including acanthosis nigricans (AN), tinea versicolor, Darier disease, terra firma-forme dermatosis, prurigo pigmentosa, flagellate dermatosis, and dyskeratosis
There was hypogranulosis or agranulosis in subcornoid lamella region along with mild dyskeratosis
and a few vacuolar cells.
and a suprabasal cleft may be seen, creating a so-called "dilapidated brick wall" appearance (figure 2), with dyskeratosis
identified in the form of corp ronds and grains.
