dc.description.abstractenglish Zinsser-Cole-Engmann syndrome, more commonly known as Dyskeratosis Congenita, is a heritable genodermato - sis having an estimated incidence of 1 in 1 million people. It is important for an oral physician to be aware of this condition as oral leukoplakia occurs in this condition as part of a classic triad along with reticulate skin pigmentation and nail dystrophy. Besides these, there may be myriad multisystem involvement as well. These individuals have a high predilection for developing malignancies as well as other grave life-threatening conditions. Timely diagnosis and management of these cases may help improve their morbidity and mortality, for which oral physicians can play a major role in recognizing the cases. This will only be possible when more of such cases are reported in dental literature. Here we present a case report of a 30 year old male patient who reported to our department with all the characteristic features of the triad and a few additional findings concordant to the disease as well. es
