a disorder characterized by absent or defective sweat glands, saddle-shaped nose, hyperpigmentation around the eyes, malformed or missing teeth, sparse hair, dysplastic nails, smooth finely wrinkled skin, syndactyly, absent mammary gland tissue, and occasionally mental retardation; X-linked recessive inheritance, caused by mutation in the ED1 gene on chromosome Xq. There is also an autosomal dominant form [MIM*129490] and an autosomal recessive form [MIM*224900].
