Ectodermal Dysplasias are a heritable group of disorders characterized by faulty development of two or more tissues derived from embryonic ectoderm. This disorder primarily involves skin, hair, nails, teeth and eccrine glands. The disease is usually diagnosed in late infancy and childhood but early diagnosis in a newborn baby tends to have good prognosis. We report a rare case of Anhidrotic Ectodermal Dysplasia in a 26 day old Newborn baby presenting with recurrent episodes of fever, hypotrichosis and anhydrosis.
