Dyskeratosis Congenita (DC) is a rare inherited disorder of ectodermal dysplasia. It consists of a classical mucocutaneous triad of abnormal skin pigmentation, nail dystrophy and leukoplakia. Pulmonary disease is seen in 10-15%. It is characterized by Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF), or Idiopathic Familial Pulmonary Fibrosis (IFPF). Non-specific Interstitial Pneumonia (NSIP) has been reported rarely in children with DC and in an isolated adult patient. Our patient had classical clinical… Expand
