Dermochondrocorneal dystrophy (François' 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.
