Abstract

Pachyonychia congenita type 2 (PC-2) is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by hypertrophic nail dystrophy, focal keratoderma, multiple pilosebaceous cysts, and other features of ectodermal dysplasia. It has been demonstrated that PC-2 is caused by mutations in the keratin 17 and keratin 6b genes. In this report, we describe a missense mutation in the keratin 17 gene, M88T, in a Korean patient whose phenotype included early onset steatocystoma multiplex and Hutchinson-like tooth deformities along with other typical features of PC-2 such as hypertrophic nails, natal teeth and follicular hyperkeratosis.
