Pachyonychia congenita is a group of autosomal dominant inheritance pattern disorders characterized by hypertrophic nail dystrophy. There are two main clinical subtypes: type 1 and 2. Pachyonychia congenita type 2 is readily differentiated from type 1 by multiple steatocysts and/or presence of natal teeth and can be confirmed by mutations of KRT6B and KRT17. We report the case of a 33-year-old female patient with the missense mutation in KRT17 gene (c.280C›T, p.Arg94Cys) and discuss the several clinical features found with this mutation in the literature.

Key words: Pachyonychia congenita type 2, KRT17, c.280C›T.
