X-linked Dyskeratosis Congenita is a rare disease that causes premature aging and is associated with abnormal or lacy skin coloring, poor nail health, lesions in the mucous membranes of the mouth, and bone marrow dysfunction. X-linked Dyskeratosis Congenita is caused by mutations in the genes responsible for making and maintaining telomeres, the ends of the chromosomes that stop the chromosomes from dividing too quickly, destructing, or sticking to other chromosomes. A person who has X-linked Dyskeratosis Congenita is more susceptible to developing leukemia, aplastic anemia, lung problems, bone marrow failure, and other cancers. A person is typically diagnosed with X-Linked Dyskeratosis Congenita as a child, but the severity of the disease has a broad spectrum. Because it is an x-linked disease that is passed down genetically, boys are more likely to have it than girls.
