People with the Clouston syndrome have characteristic thin, dry hair, and thick nails that are often discolored (Figure Two).
I have learned that many of these symptoms are associated with something called hydrotic ectodermal dysplasia (also known as Clouston syndrome, a group of genetic syndromes involving the hair, teeth, and nails which includes extreme sensitivity to light, neurodevelopmental problems, and dysmorphic facial features).
