Acro-dermato-ungual-lacrimal-tooth syndrome is characterized by ectrodactyly, syndactyly, nail dysplasia, hypoplasia of the breast and nipple, excessive freckling, lacrimal duct atresia, alopecia, primary hypodontia, and/or early loss of permanent teeth. It is a rare autosomal dominant disorder, which has been linked to mutation in the p63 gene. However unfortunately, the facilities to detect this mutation are not present in many centers. Five overlapping limb malformation syndromes have been described, including the ectrodactyly-ectodermal dysplasia-cleft syndrome .
