Ectodermal dysplasia (ED) is not a single disorder but a group of genetic syndromes all deriving from abnormalities of the ectodermal structures.
Ectodermal dysplasia is a rare but severe condition where the tissue groups (specifically teeth, skin, hair, nails and sweat glands) derived from the ectoderm undergo abnormal development.

Skull bossing

People with ED often have certain cranial-facial features which can be distinctive: frontal bossing is common, longer or more pronounced chins are frequent, broader noses are also very common.
