Keratitis-ichthyosis-deafness (KID) syndrome is a rare congenital disorder characterized by skin lesions, neurosensorial hypoacusia, and keratitis, usually due to the c.148G → A mutation involving the connexin 26 gene. We report on a KID patient who showed the atypical c.101T → C mutation and developed a T-cell lymphoma so far never described in this group of patients.
