ECTODERMAL DYSPLASIA SYNDROME: SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS


Ectodermal Dysplasia represents a group of inherited disorders characterised by manifestation of some abnormal defects in tissue derived from ectoderm. Due to defective gene mutation, the dreaded disease (syndrome) produces a group of conditions and abnormalities of ectodermal structure (hair, teeth, nails, sweat glands, craniofacial structure-Gigot and other parts of body).

In the third week of development, the primitive embryo component undergo a subdivision into neuro-ectoderm, the origin of the nervous system, and ectoderms which will envelop the entire embryonic surface, forming the epidermis, epidermal appendage and the tooth enamel. The ectoderm therefore gives rise to not only to hair, teeth, nail and sweat glands, but also the central nervous system like eyes, ears and nose, as well as eccrine mammary and pituitary gland.

During development, the ectoderm undergoes complex interaction with the mesoderm. So ectodermal disorders may also lead to abnormalities in mesoderm structures such as the musculoskeletal and the genitourinary system. 

Inherited or normal gene when altered, may become defective at the time of conception. Worldwide, 7000 people have been diagnosed with an ectodermal dysplasia condition. Some ED conditions are only present in a single family unit and derived from a recent mutation.



PRESENTATIONS:


  1. Hair: Absent or abnormality of hair growth, sparse brittle, etc.
  2. Nails: Malformation of fingers and absence of nails.
  3. Skin: Skin is dry, hot, inability to perspire, pigmentations, different types of eruptions.
  4. Sweat gland: Absence of sweat gland which causes over-heating, difficulty in controlling high fever. Mild illness can produce extreme high temperature due to lack of sweat glands. The affected patient cannot tolerate the warm environment and needs special measures. 
  5. Teeth: Conical and cup-shaped (2-3 numbers)
Cleft lip, low nasal bridge and broad forehead are very common. 

Other features: People with ED often have certain cranial-facial features which can be distinctive. Frontal bossing is common. Longer and pronounced chins are frequent; broader nose and enlarged protruded eyes are also common in some ED patient. Abnormal development of parts of eyes can result in dryness of eyes, cataracts and vision defects. Respiratory infections are also very common.



TREATMENT: There is no specific treatment for this disorder till today and no report of cure of this syndrome has been reported till today from any part of the world. Some things however can be done:
  • Wear a wig and denture to improve appearance.
  • Use artificial tears to replace normal tearing to prevent drying of the eyes.
  • Staying in a cooler climate or in an air-conditioned room and take frequent cooling water bath or use water sprays to keep a normal body temperature.

CASE HISTORY (Treatment of ED by Dr. Prakash Ranjan Mukherjee) 

A 6.5 years old patient has been treated with dynamic high potency homeopathic medicine and supportive bio-chemic (tissue remedies) combinations. Depending on the internal and the external manifestations of the patient, her likes and dislikes and other symptoms, different medicines have been applied time to time when required. Symptom wise medicine selection for this type of patient was although very tough, special care and observation for changing the medicine and its proper power administration has yielded a splendid result after 2.5 years. Gradual improvement in all respects of her abnormalities was observed stage by stage. At the present stage, anybody can be surprised to see the change of the appearance of the patient who started her treatment with a dreadful condition of mind and body.
