Abstract

We describe a girl with Niikawa-Kuroki (Kabuki) syndrome (NKS) with conical incisors, hypodontia, hypoplastic nails, and brittle hair. Abnormal teeth are common in NKS and support a hypothesis of autosomal dominant inheritance of the syndrome [Halal et al., 1989; Silengo et al., 1996]. Hair abnormalities have never been investigated in NKS. The ectodermal involvement in NKS could represent an important clue for the understanding of the pathogenesis of this syndrome.
