We report on three sibs who have autosomal recessive Clericuzio-type poikiloderma neutropenia (PN) syndrome. Recently, this consanguineous family was reported and shown to be informative in identifying the C16orf57 gene as the causative gene for this syndrome. Here we present the clinical data in detail. PN is a distinct and recognizable entity belonging to the group of poikiloderma syndromes among which Rothmund-Thomson is perhaps the best described and understood. PN is characterized by cutaneous poikiloderma, hyperkeratotic nails, generalized hyperkeratosis on palms and soles, neutropenia, short stature, and recurrent pulmonary infections. In order to delineate the phenotype of this rare genodermatosis, the clinical presentation together with the molecular investigations in our patients are reported and compared to those from the literature.
