The hereditary condition known as ectodermal dysplasia is characterized by the absence or defect of two or more ectodermally derived structures. The most commonly observed forms of ectodermal dysplasia are the hidrotic and hypohidrotic types; discrimination is based on the absence or presence of sweat glands. A case of 8-year-old male child with hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia with complete anodontia of primary as well as secondary dentitions is presented. The child had a short stature, low intelligent quotient (I.Q.,), and was underweight. The patient experienced episodes of high fever, was intolerant to heat, and did not sweat. He exhibited smooth and dry skin, sparse light-colored eyebrows. Dental clinicians can be the first to diagnose ectodermal dysplasia due to the absence of teeth.
