ADULT-syndrome: An autosomal-dominant disorder with pigment anomalies, ectrodactyly, nail dysplasia, and hypodontia



We describe a family with at least seven living persons who are affected by an hitherto undescribed autosomal-dominant syndrome with variable expression, bearing close resemblance to the EEC syndrome and related disorders. The main manifestations are hypodontia and/or early loss of permanent teeth, ectrodactyly, obstruction of lacrimal ducts, onychodysplasia, and excessive freckling. We propose the acronym ADULT (acro-der-mato-ungual-lacrimal-tooth)-syndrome for this condition. © 1993 Wiley-Liss, Inc.
