A case of ankyloblepharon, ectodermal dysplasia, and cleft lip/palate syndrome with ectrodactyly: are the p63 syndromes distinct after all?

Chiu YE, Drolet BA, Duffy KJ et al.
Editor’s note: Ectodermal dysplasias are rare genetic disorders characterized by abnormalities of the skin, hair, teeth, and nails. Five ectodermal dysplasia syndromes are attributed to mutations in the p63 gene that transcribes a transcription factor and is analogous to the p53 gene (a tumor suppressor gene).
