Adermatoglyphia

Common Name(s)

Adermatoglyphia

Adermatoglyphia is characterized by the lack of epidermal ridges on the palms and soles, which results in the absence of fingerprints, and is associated with a reduced number of sweat gland openings and reduced sweating of palms and soles (summary by {2:Nousbeck et al., 2011}). Another form of adermatoglyphia is associated with congenital facial milia and acral blistering, digital contractures, and nail abnormalities ({129200}). Also see Naegeli-Franceschetti-Jadassohn syndrome (NFJS; {161000}) and dermatopathia pigmentosa reticularis (DPR; {125595}), 2 closely related autosomal dominant ectodermal dysplasia syndromes that clinically share complete absence of dermatoglyphics and are caused by heterozygous nonsense or frameshift mutations in the KRT14 gene ({148066}).
