LUNA CEBALLOS, Elsa Juana; DOMINGUEZ PEREZ, María Eugenia; SAINZ PADRON, Laisi  and  RODRIGUEZ ACOSTA, Yasmïn. Autosomal dominant hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia associated to hypoparathyroidism. Rev.Med.Electrón. [online]. 2019, vol.41, n.4, pp.1035-1041.  Epub Aug 30, 2019. ISSN 1684-1824.

Ectodermic dysplasias are alterations of the ectoderm embryologic derivatives. This is a case of an adult female patient with hypoparathyroidism, drawing attention due to her phenotype; she was remitted by the consultation of Neurology to the Genetic one. She was diagnosed a hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia, of genetic origin with autosomal dominant inheritance, what is very rare for this entity. The case is presented with the aim of describing the clinical manifestation of this genetic alteration that never drew medical interest and nobody diagnosed or studied. It is associated to a pathologic condition like hypothyroidism and was not reported in medical literature before. The clinical evaluation of the patient allowed arriving to the diagnostic and explaining many problems that were unexplained, and also offering the adequate genetic advice to her and her relatives likewise at risk of suffering a similar genetic condition.

Keywords : hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia; genodermatosis; skin disorder of genetic origins; hypoparathyroidism.
