Description
Hoyeraal-Hreidarsson syndrome is a severe variant of the X-linked recessive dyskeratosis congenita. It is a multisystem disorder characterized by intrauterine growth retardation, microcephaly, cerebellar hypoplasia, bone marrow failure associated with immunodeficiency. A missense mutation in the DKC1 gene and  premature short telomeres were found in the disease.
