Abstract

Focal facial dermal dysplasia (or congenital ectodermal dysplasia of the face) is an inherited condition characterized by congenital scarlike lesions on the temples and a wide spectrum of associated facial abnormalities. We report the case of a woman and her son with this disorder. An autosomal dominant inheritance with variable penetrance and expressivity may explain the different clinical expressions of focal facial dermal dysplasia.
