ABSTRACT
Hereditary ectodermal dysplasia is a rare group of inherited disorders characterized by aplasia or dysplasia of two or more tissues of ectodermal origin such as hair, nails, teeth, and skin. The dental characteristics of this syndrome include anodontia or hypodontia of the primary and/or permanent teeth, hypoplastic conical teeth, and underdevelopment of the alveolar ridges. The options for a definitive treatment plan include fixed, removable or implant-supported prostheses, singly or in combination. This clinical report describes the prosthetic rehabilitation of an 11-year-old boy with hereditary ectodermal dysplasia. Maxillary flexible removable partial denture and mandibular conventional complete denture were fabricated to establish an acceptable masticatory function, speech, and esthetics for the patient.

Mentions: An 11-year-old boy reported with chief complaint of inability to masticate and unesthetic appearance. He desired replacement of his missing teeth. The patient gave history of lack of sweating, dryness of skin, and raised body temperature. Extraoral examination revealed sparse hair, frontal bossing, depressed nasal bridge, prominent supra orbital ridges, sunken cheeks, hyperpigmented skin around the eyes, protuberant lips, and decreased lower facial height (Figure 1). Nails appeared normal.
