Dyskeratosis congenita : Two extremes

J.G.L. Morrison

Abstract


The first two cases of dyskeratosis congenita recognised in South Africa are described. An iron deficiency as the possible cause of the disease is discussed and rejected. The epithelial changes are regarded as the result of an underlying pathology in the mesoderm.
