Hypohidrotic Ectodermal Dysplasia
, X-Linked Recessive This is the most common type of ectodermal dysplasia; males are severely affected while females are carriers and very mildly affected.
Holm Schneider at the University of Erlangen-Nuernberg, Germany, found that in contrast to previous reports of apparently normal sweating in a mixed cohort of male and female hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia patients, all 31 XLHED males (representing 25 different EDA mutations/deletions) demonstrated pilocarpine-stimulated sweat volumes (0-11 l) that did not overlap with the range of values obtained in age-matched control subjects (38-93 l).
X-Linked Hypohidrotic Ectodermal Dysplasia (XLHED) is a rare genetic disorder diagnosed on the basis of fine, sparse hair (hypotrichosis); few and often pointed teeth (hypodontia); diminished or absent sweat function (hypohidrosis); and recurrent respiratory infections in infancy.

So with the above clinical findings we came to an diagnosis of Hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia.
CONCLUSION: In this report we highlighted on the extra oral and intraoral findings of Hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia.
