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.

Specimens from each of these tests were assessed in a blinded fashion. National Foundation for Ectodermal Dysplasias.

X-linked anhidrotic ectodermal dysplasia manifesting in a female. Of the 25 subjects with HED, 9 had an intense response, 5 had a moderate response, 10 had a minimal response, and 1 had no sweating.

Electron microscopy showed numerous vacuoles and lipid droplets in and around corneocytes and many giant keratohyaline granules. OMIM is intended for use primarily by physicians and other professionals concerned with genetic disorders, by genetics researchers, and by advanced students in science and medicine.


All affected males had normal nails. Notably, sweat glands can also be induced hypohidrotif EDA after birth. Professionals Summary information Greekpdf Russianpdf Clinical genetics review English Noninvasivetrichograms and sweat testing can only support the diagnosis of HED as they are not sensitive or highly specific.

Hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia – Wikipedia

Women who are carriers of an X-linked disorder have a 50 percent risk of transmitting the carrier condition to their daughters, and a 50 percent risk of transmitting the disease to their sons. Two of the 9 biopsyspecimens from unaffected subjects could not be evaluated because of processing problems; 7 were available for final analysis. If a female is operating on her carrier X she will show symptoms.

D ICD – Hypohifrotic syndrome may be a manifestation of hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia.

Neurofibromatosis type I Watson syndrome Tuberous sclerosis. Starch-iodide paper sweat testclassification. Many females had abnormal teeth and mild hypohidrosis. This information was tabulated to dypslasia the status of each subject: However, females who carry a single copy of the disease gene heterozygote carriers may exhibit milder symptoms associated with the disorder.

Orphanet: Hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia with immunodeficiency

The relationship between the average number of eccrine ducts and the starch-iodide paper sweat test results inall subjects. To determine the variability of eccrine duct expression, the average number of ducts was calculated for both the control and affected groups. Ectodermal dysplasia 1, hypohidrotic, X-linked.

The diagnosis is often established after hyperthermic episodes or with delayed teeth eruption. A subset of subjects donated hair samples, participated in a noninvasive starch-iodidepaper test to determine sweat function, and provided 4-mm punch biopsy specimensfrom their scalp and palms.


There were 9 subjects with HED and 7 unaffected subjects who performedthe starch-iodide paper sweat test. Minimal sweating was defined by light focalmarkings, the most intense example illustrated here at the fingertips.

Following the first Edimer trial, a German physician, Dr. Wedderburn, of a Hindoo family in Scinde, in which ten men, in the course of four generations, were furnished, in both jaws taken together, with only four small and weak incisor teeth and with eight posterior molars.

The authors noted that diagnosis of females carriers is important to optimize neonatal and pediatric care for affected male infants who may be at substantial risk of death in infancy.

The mutation was not found in the maternal grandparents or in controls.
