If the pathogenic variant found in the proband cannot be detected in leukocyte DNA of either parent, two possible explanations are germline mosaicism in a parent or a de novo pathogenic variant in the proband.

Summary Epidemiology The disease was first described in the French-Canadian population in which it is associated with a founder effectbut has since been identified in several other ethnic groups. The authors also noted that the efficacy and safety of long-term treatment need to be explored further.

Skin can be prone to rashes or infections and can be thick over the palms and soles. Pathogenic variants detected include: This section is not meant to address all personal, cultural, or ethical issues that individuals may face or to substitute for consultation with a genetics professional.

HED2 is congemita after infancy on the basis of physical features in most affected individuals. However, evidence was provided that GJB6 could be a transcriptional target gene of p63, elucidating further the process of the development of the skin and the morphogenesis of its appendages [ Fujimoto et al ].

Pachyonychia congenita is caused by a pathogenic variant in one of the following genes: Although no instances of germline mosaicism have been reported, it remains a possibility. Diagnosis may be suspected on the basis of the clinical triad of nail eftodermica, hypotrichosis and hyperkeratosis of the palms and soles. No special pharmaceutical agent is available to improve hair growth.


Worldwide, around 7, people have been diagnosed with an ectodermal dysplasia condition. Hidrotic Ectodermal Dysplasia 2: DNA replication and repair-deficiency disorder.
