Common Name(s)

Ectodermal Dysplasia Margarita Type

Ectodermal dysplasia margarita type is a rare genetic condition that affects a person’s hair, skin, teeth, and sweat glands. People with ectodermal dysplasia are usually born with wiry, brittle, and pale hair and also with milky white nails. Their skin is often dry, wrinkled, and darker in color around their joints. People with ectodermal dysplasia usually have missing teeth, or teeth that are small and pointed. Their sweat glands may not work like other peoples causing them to easily overheat. This is because they can not sweat as much as other people, meaning that they can not cool off and their body temperature can get too high. In addition to these symptoms, people with margarita type ectodermal dysplasia may have intellectual disabilities, cleft lip, cleft palate, and teeth abnormalities. There are various resources to help manage the condition and birth defects. Doctors seek help from various therapists and community services to provide support and care for families affected by ectodermal dysplasia margarita type. Talk with your doctor if your child has been diagnosed with magarita type ectodermal dysplasia to find the best treatment for you.
