ADULT syndrome: dental features of a very rare condition.J Biol Regul Homeost Agents. 2017 Apr-Jun; 31(2 Suppl 1):61-65.JB
The Acro-Dermato-Ungual-Lacrimal-Tooth syndrome (ADULT syndrome) is one of the rarest ectodermal dysplasias and it is associated with several malformations involving especially the limbs. The most clinical features are the presence of ectrodactyly, syndactyly, hypermelanosis or multiple lentigines, onhycodysplasia, abnormalities in the lacrimal duct, recurrent conjuntivitis, photophobia, mammarian hypoplasia, hypotrichosis and frontal alopecia, hypohydrosis, cutaneous photosensitivity, nasal bridge prominence, exfoliative dermatitis and xerosis. The ectodermal dysfunction expresses itself with conoid teeth, enamel hypoplasia, dentinal dysplasia and especially hypodontia, with following functional and aesthetic defects. We report the case of an 11-year-old Caucasian girl affected by ADULT syndrome.
