Ectodermal dysplasias are a complex group of heterogenous, heritable disorders entailing two or more developmental abnormalities in ectodermal structures, such as hair, teeth, nails, and/or sweat glands. The most common subtype of these disorders is X-linked hypohidrotic that significantly impairs the quality of life of its sufferers. A 15-year-old boy, who sought the treatment for protuberant lips, saddle nose, dental anomalies, fine sparse hair, decreased sweating, intolerance to heat and photosensitivity, experienced dramatic improvement in his quality of life and confidence with aesthetic correction comprising autologous fat grafting, rhinoplasty, lip reduction, microblading and comprehensive prosthodontic and orthodontic treatments undertaken in collaboration with dental and plastic surgery departments and expert psychological counseling.
