Other Names for this Disease
- Anhidrotic ectodermic dysplasia - cleft lip/palate
- Ectodermal dysplasia syndrome, Rapp-Hodgkin type
- Ectodermal dysplasia, anhidrotic, with cleft lip/palate
- Ectodermal dysplasia, Rapp-Hodgkin type
- Rapp-Hodgkin ectodermal dysplasia syndrome
Rapp-Hodgkin syndrome has signs and symptoms that overlap considerably with those of ankyloblepharon-ectodermal defects-cleft lip/palate (AEC) syndrome. These two syndromes were classified as separate disorders until it was discovered that they both result from mutations in the same part of the same gene. Most researchers now consider Rapp-Hodgkin syndrome and AEC syndrome to be part of the same disease spectrum.
