• A fourth case of a newly recognized variant of ectodermal dysplasia is reported. This syndrome is characterized by bilateral apocrine hidrocystomas of the eyelid margins, hypodontia, palmar-plantar hyperkeratosis, and onychodystrophy. To our knowledge, this syndrome, with its striking ocular manifestations, has not been previously documented in the ophthalmic literature.
