X-Linked Hypohidrotic Ectodermal Dysplasia (XLHED) is characterized by three cardinal features: hypotrichosis (sparse hair), hypohidrosis (reduced sweating) and hypodontia (absence of teeth). X-linked hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia is inherited in an X-linked manner and caused my variants in the EDA gene. Read more details about this test.
