Transcript of "Student Work Ectrodactyly"

  1. 1. Ectrodactyly-ectodermal dysplasia-cleft syndrome
  2. 2. Ectrodactyly • A.K.A. lobster claw syndrome • “derived from the Greek ektroma (abortion) and daktylos (finger) = literally, abortion (of a) finger.” (medterms.com) • rare deformation that happens during the pregnancy
  3. 3. • It can be a morphogenesis(process that chooses the shape of the fetus)Or a chromosomal deformity since the time of fertility • It is caused by a dominant mutant allele • Only happens in hands or feet with effects in other parts of the body
  4. 4. • Deformation in the ectoderm layer • Can happen with no family history • Can suffer from Ectodermal Dysplasia(irregluar skin and hair glands) at the same time
  5. 5. • Also with a Cleft Lip/Palate • Hypopigmentation of the skin and hair • Abnormalities in hair, lip, tooth and palate
  6. 6. Consequences • Physical challenge • Social isolated • Problems in many parts of the body some are in the – Skin • dry skin • lack of sweat pores • thined skin • thickened skin
  7. 7. – Hair • dry, brittle hair • generalized depigmentation of hair • fine hair – Eyes • nasolacrimal duct obstruction (tear duct obstruction) • excessive lacrimation (tears) • corneal ulcers and scarring • photophobia
  8. 8. Diagnosis • DNA tests can help • Ectoderm examinations( not that precise because of the overlap in symptoms) • Kidney structure abnormality • X rays help view the abnormalities • Skin biopsy( sweat glands not normal in shape and size, skin cells abnormal)
  9. 9. Treatment and Management • No cure • Surgery • Dental Care • Prevention with abnormalities in hypohydrosis( over sweating)
