Abstract

Poikiloderma with neutropenia is also known as “Navajo poikiloderma.” There are only a couple dozen known cases of this rare genodermatosis with autosomal recessive inheritance. Patients present with mutations in C16orf57. Both genders are equally affected. It was recently described in 2011 and found to have a predominance in the Navajo Indian population.
