Hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia is one of about types of ectodermal dysplasia in humans. Before birth, these disorders result in the abnormal. Disease definition. Hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia (HED) is a genetic disorder of ectoderm development characterized by malformation of ectodermal. Hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia with immunodeficiency (HED-ID) is a type of HED (see this term) characterized by the malformation of ectodermal structures.

The authors stated that this was the first de novo insertion identified in the EDA gene.

Hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia

In most cases, HED is diagnosed during early childhood when characteristic dental and hair abnormalities become apparent and prompt further testing. However, the skin around the eyes periorbital may be darkly pigmented hyperpigmentation and finely wrinkled, appearing prematurely aged. A starch-iodide paper sweat test that shows minimal or no sweat production is likely among those with HED. Genodermatoses Defects in innate immunity Ectoderm Syndromes Rare diseases. Only comments written in English can be processed.

DNA probe linkage analysis and gene localization. Two human X-autosome translocations identified by autoradiography and fluorescence. Despite the initial diagnosis of Lelis syndrome in this patient, the ectodremal features, hypotrichosis, and anodontia were reminiscent of HED, leading van Steensel and van der Hout to analyze the EDA genewhich revealed a known causative missense mutation, RH Since the break in the X chromosome was hypohldrotic Xq12, the possibility that the EDA locus is situated there was raised de la Chapelle, All the candidate genes encode proteins in a single signaling pathway.


Hypodontia was evident; none of the teeth were peg-shaped.

Dental examination at ages 14 and 12 revealed hypodontia, with mostly peg-shaped teeth. Only comments seeking to improve the quality and accuracy of information on the Orphanet website are accepted. Specialised Social Services Eurordis directory.

Of the 15 unaffected subjects, 10 were male and 5 were female. However, these results suggest that there are at least 2 subsets of individuals affected with HED: Of these, 15 were unaffected friends or relatives and 25 had HED. J Clin Pediatr Dent.

Whether this was a homozygous affected or a heterozygous manifesting female is uncertain, especially since no information was provided on whether the father was affected. Capillary hemangioma Port-wine stain Nevus flammeus nuchae. Failure to thrive may be observed. Hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia can be associated with dysmorphic features forehead bumps, rings under the eyes, everted nose, and prominent lips and occasionally with absent nipples summary by Cluzeau et al.


The control group included 8unrelated volunteers, ectodeermal relatives with negative results on previous genetictesting, and 5 fathers of families with affected sons and unaffected daughters. Ectodysplasin-A is expressed in normalfetal and adult skin and hair and in adult teeth. Carrier testing is available if the disease-causing mutation s have been identified in an affected family member.


The authors noted that mutations were detected in only one-tenth of patients studied. In males who have only one X chromosomeone altered copy of the gene in each cell is sufficient to cause the condition.

Orphanet: Hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia with immunodeficiency

Schopf-Schulz-Passarge syndrome, odonto-onycho-dermal dysplasia syndrome, Witkop tooth and nail syndrome, and tricho-dento-osseous syndrome.

Typical clinical manifestations also include dryness of the skin, eyes, airways, and mucous membranes presumably due to the defective development of several exocrine glands. Gene localisation of X-linked hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia C-S-T syndrome. This study is the firstto demonstrate widely varying sweat function test results and eccrine densities in those affected with HED.

Palmar biopsy specimens from 3 of 10 affected subjects lacked eccrine hhypohidrotic all 3 subjects were malewhile all 10 of the palmar biopsy specimens fromcontrol subjects showed some eccrine structures Figure 6.

In contrast to widely held belief, quantification of eccrine ducts ina 4-mm palmar skin biopsy specimen is only a valuable diagnostic tool whenidentifiable eccrine structures are completely absent.
