Background: Ectodermal dysplasia is a hereditary group of disorders which are manifested as X-linked recessive trait and has a full expression in males, whereas females show little or no signs of the disorder. This disorder leads to disturbances in the ectoderm of the developing embryo. It has many evident general and oral features which makes its rehabilitation of utmost importance. Correction of the presenting clinical oral disorders may help improve the quality of life for the patient. A multidisciplinary approach has to be adopted for such cases and it becomes a challenge in pediatric patients. In this report, etiology, clinical presentation, diagnosis and treatment plan of a 7-year-old male patient suffering from ectodermal dysplasia has been discussed.
