Targeted analysis for the four known pathogenic variants in GJB6 should be the initial molecular genetic testing approach. Mutations in GJB6 cause hidrotic ectodermal dysplasia.

Only comments written in English can be processed.

The family history of some individuals diagnosed with HED2 may appear to be negative because of failure to recognize the disorder in family members. In many cases, wigs are helpful. Disease penetrance is complete, but expression is quite variable even between affected individuals from the same family.

Pigmentation disordersTemplate: Variants listed in the table have been provided by the author.

Family planning The optimal time for determination of genetic risk and discussion of the availability of prenatal testing is before pregnancy. In early childhood, the nails may be milky white.

View All Subscription Options. A mutation in the hair matrix and cuticle keratin KRTHB5 gene causes ectodermal dysplasia of hair and nail type.

Ectodermal dysplasia ED is not a single disorder but a group of syndromes all deriving from abnormalities of the ectodermal structures. Pathogenic variants included in a panel may vary by laboratory. The nails are thickened, slow growing, brittle, often hyperconvex and discoloured with striation. Molecular Genetic Testing Gene.

Genetic counseling is the process of providing individuals and families with information on the nature, inheritance, and implications of genetic disorders to help them make informed medical and personal decisions.

Individuals affected by certain ED syndromes cannot perspire. A novel connexin 30 mutation cohgenita Clouston syndrome. Residual scalp hair is slow growing, sparse, fine and brittle.


Diagnosis may be suspected on the basis of the clinical triad of nail dystrophy, hypotrichosis and hyperkeratosis of the palms and soles. Disease definition Clouston syndrome or hidrotic ectodermal dysplasia is characterised by the clinical triad of nail dystrophy, alopecia, and palmoplantar hyperkeratosis.

The following section deals with genetic risk assessment and the use of family history and genetic testing to clarify genetic status for family members. Orthodontic treatment also may be necessary.

This section is not meant to address all personal, cultural, or ethical issues that individuals may face or to substitute ectodetmica consultation with a genetics professional.

A novel GJB6 missense mutation in hidrotic ectodermal dysplasia 2 Clouston syndrome broadens its genotypic basis. Special hair care products may help to manage dry and sparse hair. Displsia, of which mutations underlie Clouston syndrome, is a potential direct target gene of p Their sweat glands may function abnormally or may not have developed at all because of inactive proteins in the sweat glands.
