Ectodermal dysplasias are genetic disorders that can be inherited in an autosomal dominant or recessive manner.
  • Symptoms of osteosclerosis and ectodermal dysplasia include atrial septal defect, low levels of neutrophils, growth delays, and intellectual disabilities.

  • Osteosclerosis and ectodermal dysplasia is extremely rare, with only a few reported cases in the scientific literature. There is a lack of information on the life expectancy of individuals with osteosclerosis and ectodermal dysplasia.
