Abstract

Occasional reports have appeared in medical literature on ectodermal defects or ectodermal dysplasias. Some of the anomalies have been of the anhidrotic type. Rarely has there been any suggestion of possible concomitant mesodermal involvement. A case of such involvement as well as of an osseous aplasia is presented here, with a discussion of the salient characteristics and unusual relations.

REPORT OF A CASE  M. E., a white woman aged 26, unmarried, an office worker, had had a disturbance of the skin since birth.

Family History.—  The father, 52 years of age; the mother, 45 years of age, and two sisters, 19 and 10 years of age, were living and well. There had been no other pregnancies. There was no history of a similar condition in any known member of the family, nor was there a history of insanity, cancer, tuberculosis, congenital heart disease or epilepsy.

Past History.—  The patient's health
