Özet

Dyskeratosis congenita is a rare, hereditary, multisystem disorder characterized by mucocutaneous changes, pancytopenia and increased incidence of malignancy. Different types of neoplasia have been reported in association with dyskeratosis congenita. We present a second case associated with Hodgkin's disease. Delayed appearance of dermatological signs and association with chronic hepatitis B are other unusual features of this case.
