Abstract

Ramesh DNSV, Prahlad Hunsagi

Ectodermal Dysplasia (ED) is a hereditary congenital disorder of ectodermal origin. It is characterized by lack of sweat glands, (hypohydrosis), Alopecia (Hypotrichosis), defective palms and soles (Palmoplantar hyper keratosis) and oral presentation of partial absence of teeth, (hypodontia) or complete absence of teeth (anodontia). Hypodontia of primary and permanent dentition is one of the most frequently occurring oral symptoms in ectodermal Dysplasia. We report an unusual case of ectodermal dysplasia effecting soles and palms along with oral manifestations.
