Dominant mutations in the KLHL24 gene, encoding for kelch-like protein 24, have been implicated in the pathogenesis of epidermolysis bullosa simplex (EBS). So far, 26 patients from different ethnicities have been reported and all of them harboured a heterozygous KLHL24 start-codon mutation, with c.1A>G;p.Met1? being the most prevalent.1-3 Through this report, we aimed to expand the phenotypic spectrum by incorporating additional findings, in particular, dilated cardiomyopathy, seen in a Dutch family.
