ankyloblepharon-ectodermal defects-cleft lip/palateAn autosomal dominant condition (OMIM:106260) characterised by congenital ectodermal dysplasia with sparse coarse and wiry hair, dystrophic nails, slight hypohidrosis, scalp and skin erosion, ankyloblepharon filiform adnatum, maxillary hypoplasia, hypodontia, and cleft lip/palate.
