Leukonychia totalis, multiple sebaceous cysts, and renal calculi. A syndrome

Abstract: A 27-year-old man had leukonychia totals, multiple sebaceous cysts, and renal calculi. Pedigree analysis showed a total of four generations involved, with koilonychia additionally present in three of the affected individuals. Autosomal dominant inheritance is a postulation.

“…Several cases of partial hereditary leuconychia, in which the nail is white proximally and pink near its free edge, as in our patient, have been described 2,8 , 15,16 , 29,30 . Involvement of only a part and/or to a variable extent of the patient's nails is commonplace 2,8 , 15 . In addition, both total and partial leuconychia may be found separately in some persons at different times.…”

“…This abnormality in nail colour may be inherited as an autosomal dominant trait and may be isolated or associated with other inheritable disorders. 21,22 Interestingly, the association of leuconychia and multiple sebaceous or trichilemmal cysts has already been described, 23,24 but no relationship between nail colour abnormalities and Alagille syndrome has been previously reported.…”

“…True leukonychia can be inherited as an isolated condition or as one of several other reported syndromes. There are a number of autosomal, dominantly inherited leukonychia syndromes, including leukonychia totalis, in which leukonychia occurs in combination with kidney stone and sebaceous cysts [3, 4], as well as leukonychia, with sensory-neural deafness and knuckle pads, known as the Bart-Pumphrey syndrome [5, 6] (Table 1). …”
