A wide range of hereditary anomalies, characterized by hair defects and only partially known from the genetics point of view, involves the teeth and oral mucosa with particular features. Teeth alterations are extremely heterogeneous; very frequently gums, palate, tongue and lips are affected. Waiting for a more comprehensive genetic definition and classification, these anomalies are grouped according to the hair defect (hypotrichosis, hypertrichosis and mixed-type).
