Anhidrotic ectodermal dysplasia with lacrimal anomalies.
  1. G M Liakos


    Ectodermal dysplasia and its related disorders may present with ocular symptoms due to involvement of the ectodermal components of the eye. This paper reports a case of congenital anhidrotic ectodermal dysplasia presenting to the ophthalmologist with epiphora due to lacrimal atresia. The embryonic origin of the lacrimal system suggests that lacrimal anomalies in association with ectodermal disorders are commoner than reports indicate. Their management consists in accurate evaluation of the anomaly followed by surgery.
