Dyskeratosis congenita (DC) is a rare heritable skin disorder with progressive bone marrow failure. Psychiatric manifestations could also be a presentation of this rare skin condition. Although it has been associated with psychiatric manifestations, there is a dearth of information regarding mood symptoms in this condition.

He was also worked up for other physical manifestations of DC.
