Abstract

Abstract Hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia (Christ-Siemens-Touraine syndrome) is characterized by partial or complete absence of sweat glands, hypotrichosis, hypodontia, prominent frontal ridges and chin, saddle nose, sunken cheeks, thick, everted lips, large ears and sparse hair. While association of other ectodermal dysplasia syndromes with tumors such a non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, hamartoma, keratoakanthoma, Merkel-cell cancer, squamous-cell carcinoma, syringofibroadenomatosis has been reported, association of hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia and a tumor has not been reported. In a five-year-old male patient admitted with nasal obstruction and nasal mass complaints, we have reported firstly an association of hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia and nasopharyngeal rhabdomyosarcoma.
