Odonto-onycho-dermal dysplasia.Br J Dermatol. 1995 Nov; 133(5):797-800.BJ
Odonto-onycho-dermal dysplasia is an ectodermal dysplasia (ED) described once previously in two families who exhibited atrophic malar patches, sparse hair, conical teeth, dystrophic nails and hyperkeratosis of the palms and soles. We describe a boy who developed a blistering malar rash soon after birth. When examined at 11 months, and then at 27 months of age, he had persistent atrophic malar plaques that reddened with heat. He also showed nail dystrophy, sparse hair, lingual concavity of the incisors, a bifid maxillary incisor, a five-cusped molar, and hyperhidrosis of the palms and soles. In addition he had chronic tearing, photophobia, blepharitis, and a mild keratitis. After reviewing EDs with atrophic or scar-like skin changes, we believe this child most resembles the patients with odonto-onycho-dermal dysplasia, although his eye findings are unique.
