  • Abstract

    Dyskeratosis congenita (DKC) is a rare bone marrow failure syndrome which is recognized with a clinical triad of hyperpigmentation, nail dystrophy and oral leukoplakia. Two major conditions are known to be responsible for the high mortality rate of DKC which are aplastic anemia and secondary malignancies. We report a case with the classic triad although without any evidence of the well understood fatal background. Keywords: dyskeratosis congenita, bone marrow failure syndrome, hyperpigmentation, nail dystrophy, oral leukoplakia, secondary malignancies.
