Welcome - EEC syndrome Community

What is EEC syndrome ?

EEC syndrome is a genetic developmental disorder characterized by ectrodactyly, ectodermal dysplasia, and orofacial clefts (cleft lip/palate).

The three cardinal signs of the syndrome are ectrodactyly and syndactyly of the hands and feet, cleft lip with or without cleft palate (that can result in speech defects), and abnormalities in several ectodermal structures including skin (i.e. hypopigmentated and dry skin, hyperkeratosis, skin atrophy), hair (i.e. fine and sparse hair and eyebrows), teeth (small, absent or dysplastic teeth), nails (nail dystrophy) and exocrine glands (reduction/absence of sweat, sebaceous and salivary glands).
