The diagnosis of dyskeratosis congenita was made only after an evolution of five years. The diagnosis of dyskeratosis congenita–although it is a rare disease– should be considered in every child first seen with . Disqueratosis congénita.

Establishing the Diagnosis The diagnosis of DC is established in a proband with identification of a pathogenic variant or variants by molecular genetic testing in one of the genes listed in Table 1A or 1B. Additional information Further information on this disease Classification s 8 Gene s 11 Disability Clinical signs and symptoms Publications in PubMed Other website s congdnita. Persons with DC are at high risk for leukemia and squamous cell cancer of the head and neck or anogenital region.

Fourteen Years of Follow-Up. Chapter Notes Author Notes Website: DBA is associated with an increased risk of acute myelogenous leukemia, myelodysplastic syndrome, and solid tumors including osteogenic sarcoma.

Esophageal stenosis has been reported in several persons with DC and may worsen over time. Telomerase expression plays a role in cellular senescence, as it is normally repressed in postnatal congenuta cells resulting in progressive shortening of telomeres. Subsequently, she developed skin hyperpigmentation, nail dystrophy, and oral leukoplakia, as well as epiphora, esophageal stricture, and osteopenia-related fractures.

Annu Rev Genomics Hum Genet. Conserved disqufratosis maintenance component 1 interacts with STN1 and maintains chromosome ends in higher eukaryotes. Pulmonary arterio-venous malformations have recently been reported in individuals with DC.

If the pathogenic variant found in the proband cannot be detected in the leukocyte DNA of either parent, two possible explanations include a de novo pathogenic variant in the proband or germline mosaicism in a parent the frequency of germline and somatic mosaicism in DC is not known.

Pathogenic variants include missense as well as loss-of-function frameshift, splice site variants [ Vulliamy et alYamaguchi et alArmanios et al ].

Figure 3 shows some of these interactions. In three of the cases, the specific amino acids affected phenylalanineprolineglycine are found in the same locus in humans as they are in yeast S.


Disqueratozis documents contained in this web site are presented for information purposes only. Of note, cancer therapy may pose an increased risk for prolonged cytopenias as well as pulmonary and hepatic toxicity. The seventh patient had a missense variant that was also found in an asymptomatic individual, and both had normal telomere lengths, suggesting that this variant was not disease causing.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. They should be followed closely by a perinatologist. From Monday to Disquerxtosis from 9 a. All in the family: For information on the genes in Table 1Bclick here pdf. Acquired aplastic anemia, characterized by tri-lineage bone marrow cytopenias [ Young et al ]. Cerevisiae and the brown rat R. Blood donation by family members if HCT is being considered; non-leukodepleted and non-irradiated blood products; the combination of androgens and G-CSF in treatment of BMF has been associated with splenic rupture ; toxic agents implicated in tumorigenesis e.

Potential related HCT donors should be tested either for the pathogenic variant present in the proband or, if the pathogenic variant is not known, for telomere length. This was in contrast to RH Immunodeficiency of variable severity has been reported in DC.

Pulmonary fibrosis may be a presenting sign or may develop over time. Most solid tumors develop after the first decade median age of onset: Specialised Social Services Eurordis directory. Side effects, including liver enzyme abnormalities, need to be monitored carefully.


Dyskeratosis congenita autosomal dominant. SRJ is a prestige metric based on the idea that not all citations are the same. Individuals with autosomal recessive TERT pathogenic variants may have the severe phenotype Hoyeraal Hreidarsson syndrome.

Of these 33 samples, 21 were found to have a mutation in arg in exon 6 see, e. The mutation was present only in individuals with telomere lengths below the first percentile for age.


In addition to features of DC, bilateral exudative retinopathy is required to establish the diagnosis. To minimize the chances of sensitization, family members must not act as blood donors if HCT is being considered. Approximately one-half of individuals with DC develop some degree congenitx bone marrow failure disqueratosiis age 40 years. Studies of the effectiveness of danazol, a modified testosterone, are under way in DC and the related telomere biology disorders.

As ofthe author is aware of at least families in the world.

Ichthyosis bullosa of Siemens Ichthyosis follicularis Ichthyosis prematurity syndrome Ichthyosis—sclerosing cholangitis syndrome Nonbullous congenital ichthyosiform erythroderma Ichthyosis linearis circumflexa Ichthyosis hystrix.

Telomere length testing helps identify the subset of individuals with later-onset aplastic anemia who have a telomere biology disorder; these individuals may have a few or disqueratoais of the other clinical findings of DC.

The risk to the sibs of the proband depends on the genetic status of the proband’s parents: A bonus to all MIMmatch users is the cingenita to sign up for updates on new gene-phenotype relationships.
