A Report on Genetic Mapping in Papillon-Lefèvre Syndrome

A Report on Genetic Mapping in Papillon-Lefèvre Syndrome

Two cases of Papillon-Lefevre syndrome (PLS) in paediatric patients treated with a multidisciplinary approach have been identified in the current case series. Papillon-Lefevre syndrome (PLS) is an unusual heterogeneous autosomal recessive trait characterised by erythematous palmoplantar hyperkeratosis, periodontitis of early onset, and dura mater associated calcification. With genetic, immunological, and microbial factors playing a role in etiopathogenesis, the aetiology of PLS is multifactorial. The recently discovered PLS genetic defect was mapped to chromosome 11q14-q21, which includes cathepsin C mutations. This paper presents a report of 2 cases of Papillonlefevre syndrome in which diagnosis is based on clinical presentation and genetic mapping.PLS in an extremely rare condition is associated with lifelong psychological and social impacts on the growing children such as depression including hopelessness, aimlessness, social phobia, and a fear of communicating with people outside their family.
