Ectodermal dysplasia is a group of genetic syndromes all deriving from abnormalities of the ectodermal structures. More than 150 different syndromes have been identified. Despite some of the syndromes having different genetic causes, the symptoms are sometimes very similar. Diagnosis is usually by clinical observation, often with the assistance of family medical histories so that it can be determined whether transmission is autosomal dominant or recessive. Worldwide, around 1/7,000 people have Purpose: The purpose of this study was to characterize the facial morphology of Chinese children with hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia (HED) and quantify facial changes after prosthetic treatment.Methods: 3-D facial images of 12 HED children were taken and their facial morphology was compared against 28 healthy controls. Facial changes due to denture placement were also quantified There is no specific treatment to cure Ectodermal dysplasia, but there are many ways to diminish the symptoms X-linked hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia (XLHED) is caused by defects in the EDA gene that inactivate the function of ectodysplasin A1 (EDA1). This leads to abnormal development of eccrine glands, hair follicles, and teeth, and to frequent respiratory infections. Previous studies in the nat
The ectodermal dysplasias (EDs) comprise a large, heterogeneous group of inherited disorders that are defined by primary defects in the development of 2 or more tissues derived from embryonic ectoderm. The tissues primarily involved are the skin and its appendages (hair follicles, eccrine glands, sebaceous glands, and, nails) and teeth Treatment of hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia may include special hair care formulas or wigs, measures to prevent overheating, removal of ear and nose concretions, and dental evaluations and treatment (e.g., restorations, dental implants, or dentures) 2). Access to an adequate water supply and a cool environment during hot weather medical term of ectodermal dysplasia was coined by Weech in 1929.

Other tissues derived from the primitive ectoderm that can be involved. Expand Section. There are many different types of ectodermal dysplasias. Each type of dysplasia is caused by specific mutations in certain genes. Dysplasia means abnormal development of cells or tissues. The most common form of ectodermal dysplasia usually affects men. Other forms of the disease affect men and women equally Ectodermal dysplasia (EDD) is one of these. 1, 2 There have been reports on successful dental implant treatment in patients with EDD, but the success rate is much lower for EDD patients. 3, 4 This is a case report of a successful single crown supported by a small diameter, mini, implant in a patient with EDD The treatment regimen for ectodermal dysplasia is determined, depending on the existing disorders, and involves the use of symptomatic agents against the background of lifelong special care, which is prescribed to the patient as a lifestyle and includes avoiding overheating and physical exertion. Therapeutic tactics also depend on the patient's.
