Hereditary ectodermal dysplasia is a group of disorder running in the family where more than one manifestation occurs involving skin, nail, hair, glands and teeth In the present study, five cases were detected in district of Bangalore,Karnataka and studied in detail. Out of them three were girls and two boys showing manifestation dysplasia of teeth, skin & sweat glands between the age groups of 5 years to 14 years of age. There are three girls between 5 to 18 years showing oligodentia (0.13) in 2 girls and anodentia in one girl (0.67) associated with periorbital wrinkling and mild mid facial hypoplasia.The other 2 were boys between 8years and 15 years of age showed oligodentia, anhydosis brittle nails with vertical ridges, and 15 years old boy also showed periorbital wrinkling. The mothers of these five patients were also studied. Consanguity along with heredity and hypertension has played a vital role in the development of ectodermal dysplasia These 5 cases were compared and correlated with available literatures.
