Özet

A 13-yr-old girl with dyskeratosis congenita is presented. Besides oral leukoplakia and nail dystrophies, there was evidence of pancytopenia, growth retardation, allopecia, mental retardation and microcephaly. The oral findings included caries, gingival recession, short-blunted roots, gingival bleeding, tooth mobility and severe alveolar bone loss resembling juvenile periodontitis.
