  title={Absent meibomian glands: A marker for EEC syndrome},
  author={Elizabeth Bonnar and Patricia Logan and Peter Eustace},
A patient with a 20 year history of severe keratoconjunctivitis of unknown origin was found, on assessment at a blepharitis clinic, to have complete absence of meibomian glands. Further examination revealed the features of EEC syndrome. To our knowledge, this is the only case to have been diagnosed in this way. The ocular complications of EEC syndrome and other ectodermal dysplasias are reviewed.
