ectodermal dysplasia?

I am 25 and I have ectodermal dysplasia. its a condition where a person is born with mouth, skin and hair deformities. luckily I only have a problem with my teeth. Unfortunatly all of my teeth are baby teeth. yep thats right, I have no adult teeth. if I lose my teeth I dont grow permanant ones in thier place. the teeth I have right now are the same ones I had at age 2. does anyone know of any dentists who are looking to use somone as a guinea pig or practice for implants or other elective (but in my case very necesarry) procedures

I have dental implants and I too have a dental birth condition. Mine however is where I had too many teeth. Between the baby teeth and permanent teeth there are tons of extra teeth. More like bone things made out of tooth material. My conditon is called cleidocranial dysplasia.

I have dental implants and the poster before me whether a nurse or not has no clue what those of us who have never had a beautiful smile feels.
Getting implants isn't a horrible procedure either. In fact not bad at all. Lengthy? After never having a beautiful smile 5 months to me wasn't lengthy but so very worth it.

As to who to tell you to call? Maybe a dental university. They study people with different conditions. My prosthodontists have treated people with your condition as well. I will give you a link to someone who has your condition and you can see what they did for them. Feel free to send me an e-mail.  (+ info)

Ectodermal Dysplasia?

The ectodermal dysplasias (EDs) is a large, heterogeneous group of inherited disorders due to primary defects in the development. The tissues primarily involved are the skin, hair, nails, eccrine glands, and teeth.
The ectodermal dysplasias are congenital, diffuse, and nonprogressive.

To date, more than 192 distinct disorders have been described. The most common ectodermal dysplasias are X-linked recessive hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia (Christ-Siemens-Touraine syndrome) and hidrotic ectodermal dysplasia (Clouston syndrome).

The frequency of the different ectodermal dysplasias in a given population is highly variable. The prevalence of hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia, the most common variant, is estimated to be 1 case per 100,000 births.
Beyond early childhood, life expectancy ranges from normal to slightly reduced  (+ info)

I need to find pictures for a presentation on hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia?

Did you check "Google Images"? It seems to always work for me! I have to do quite a few presentations in school and have never had a problem getting any image! Good Luck!  (+ info)

Does any one have ectodermal dysplasia who's also needed a tracheostomy who can answer my questions?

My 6yr. old is needing a tracheostomy placed (possibly) but we are not sure as to how the skin reacts to foriegn objects and how well it heals. She is also immune deficient so we know there are great risks to consider.

My enscapulatoryness tells me to gontroginately answer your melmikdorifinly asked question.  (+ info)

Does any one have Ectodermal Dysplasia?

It is a genetic disorder that affects hair, teeth, nails and your ability to sweat. My sisters, mother, son and I all have it.

Anyone need someone to talk to?

I may not have all the answers but it helps to know there is someone else out there in the same boat.
Thanks Micael E; however to clarify, I am speaking of a genetic disorder not a cancer...there is no cure for this disorder...yet. It is caused by a genteic mutation or passed on through the x chromosome.

My daughter was born with this condition and I had never deen or heard of it before. She is now 6 yrs. old. Not only does she have absence of hair, eye lashes, eye brows ect., nails are deformed, teeth missing enamel and pointy, hearing loss, gluacoma, and immune deficiant, but she is now faced with reaccurrent lung problems. We think this is due to the immune problem but the docs are wanting to place a tracheostomy. The problem we are facing now is we are not sure how the skin is going to react to the foreign object and if it will heal correctly around the tube. Would you know any body facing this problem? I guess I could post this question :)  (+ info)

Hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia?

Does anyone know when hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia was discovered? please include your resources. Thank you!!!

Anna - X-linked anhidrotic (hypohidrotic) ectodermal dysplasia (EDA; MIM 305100) is one of the more common types of over 150 clinically distinct hereditary ectodermal dysplasias. It is characterized by sparse hair, abnormal or missing teeth, and an inability to sweat due to the lack of sweat glands (Freire-Maia & Piñeiro 1994).

Urgent: Who first discovered Ectodermal Dysplasia?

Um, can u give me some detailed answers this is for a presentation? And also, i need some web sources or you need to tell me where you got it from. Thank you!
OK yes obviously it was by thurman, then Charles Darwin, the this weech character. but I really need to know what these guy's first names are and i need it now! not to be impolite but i need this done!

The ectodermal dysplasias (EDs) comprise a large, heterogeneous group of inherited disorders that are defined by primary defects in the development of 2 or more tissues derived from embryonic ectoderm. The tissues primarily involved are the skin, hair, nails, eccrine glands, and teeth. Although Thurman published the first report of a patient with ED in 1848, the term ectodermal dysplasia was not coined until 1929 by Weech.  (+ info)

What happens when the cervical dysplasia is gone but the high risk hpv is still present?

I was diagnosed with low-grade cervical dysplasia a while ago and following my most recent test I was told that I no longer had the dysplasia but the high-risk hpv that caused it was still there... Does this mean that cervical dysplasia could come back? And is it possible that the hpv could ever go away?

Yes, if you still have HPV present, then you could have a recurrence of cervical dysplasia. This mean you need to have regular Pap smears to monitor your progress.

Most women clear their infection eventually. But some women's infections persist indefinitely. I don't know which category you're in, but you will have to take a wait-and-see approach. In the mean time, you should take good care of yourself. Don't smoke (smoking is linked to greater risk of dysplasias), eat healthy and exercise so your otherall health and immune system are working well.  (+ info)

What is the difference between hyperplasia and dysplasia- and can anyone give me a reference for it?

I can't seem to find a book or journal article that specifically defines the difference between dysplasia and hyperplasia- any help would be much appreciated!

Hyperplasia is a general term referring to the proliferation of cells within an organ or tissue beyond that which is ordinarily seen

Dysplasia is a term used in pathology to refer to an abnormality of development.

Hyperplasia = excessive normal cells which are benign.
Dysplasia = excessive abnormal cells which can become malignant.  (+ info)
