ABSTRACT
Ectodermal dysplasia is an uncommon genodermatosis which may be associated with mental retardation. The diagnosis is often missed in newborns or delayed due to its varied overlapping clinical presentation in affected individuals. We report two maternal blood related males with complaints of heat intolerance since birth, lack of sweating and dry scaly skin. Both had normal developmental milestone and mental acuity. The treatment is symptomatic and patient dependant while overall management requires a multidisciplinary team approach.
