This paper describes odontomicronychial dysplasia, a pure ectodermal dysplasia of the 2-3 subgroup of group A. It is characterised by precocious eruption and shedding of deciduous dentition, precocious eruption of secondary dentition with short, rhomboid roots, and short, thin, slow growing nails. This condition probably results from an autosomal recessive gene.
