Dermochondrocorneal dystrophy (Francois' syndrome) is an extremely rare disorder characterized by firm, nodular lesions involving the hands and the face; osteochondrodystrophy of the peripheral extremital bones, resulting in limitation of movement; and corneal dystrophy marked by white or brownish opacities. A nonfamilial case of dermochondrocorneal dystrophy was studied in a 45-year-old woman who had severe involvement of the gingival and palatal mucous membranes.

Abstract

Dermochondrocorneal dystrophy (Francois' syndrome) is an extremely rare disorder characterized by firm, nodular lesions involving the hands and the face; osteochondrodystrophy of the peripheral extremital bones, resulting in limitation of movement; and corneal dystrophy marked by white or brownish opacities. A nonfamilial case of dermochondrocorneal dystrophy was studied in a 45-year-old woman who had severe involvement of the gingival and palatal mucous membranes.
