Two cases of the EEC syndrome in children of the same family, only one observed directly, are reported. The case presented the complete picture, i.e., ectodermic dysplasia, ectodactylia and labiopalatoschisis as well as psychomotor retardation. This malformative picture is extremely rare and only about ten cases have been reported in the world literature. On the basis of the known consanguinity of the parents, a recessive autosomic transmission hypothesis is advanced.
