Dyskeratosis congenita is a syndrome characterised mainly by pigmentation and atrophy of skin, nail dystrophy and oral leucoplakia. We report a patient who had features consistent with this syndrome including skin atrophy and pigmentation, oral leucoplakia, oesophageal stricture, but with normal finger and toe nails. Even though many variants have been described in the literature sparing of the nails as in our patient is extremely uncommon.
