AbstractA case of dyskeratosis congenita (DC) associated with 'empty' sella in a 22-year old Arab male born of consanguineous marriage is reported. He exhibited all the essential features of DC and various ocular and dental abnormalities. In addition, lateral radiograph of the skull revealed enlargement of the pituitary fossa and cranial CT scan showed features suggestive of 'empty' sella. The association of 'empty' sella with dyskeratosis congenita does not seem to have been recorded in earlier literature.
