A number sign (#) is used with this entry because of evidence that Haim-Munk syndrome (HMS) is caused by homozygous mutation in the gene encoding. Haim–Munk syndrome is a cutaneous condition caused, like Papillon-Lefevre Syndrome, by a mutation in the cathepsin C gene. It is named after Dr. Salim Haim. Abstract. Of the many palmoplantar keratoderma (PPK) conditions, only Papillon- Lefèvre syndrome (PLS) and Haim-Munk syndrome (HMS) are associated with.
