Abstract: Xeroderma pigmentosum (XP) is a genodermatosis that results in increased sensitivity to UV-radiation, resulting in early onset of photodamage and skin cancers. There are eight XP subtypes, seven due to variable defects in the nucleotide excision repair pathway and one due to a defect in translesion synthesis. Patients with XP have mucocutaneous, ocular, and sometimes neurologic manifestations.
