Focal dermal hypoplasia in a father and daughter.


Focal dermal hypoplasia (FDH) is most often seen in females who have severe mesenchymal defects as well as distinctive cutaneous abnormalities. We describe a 45-year-old man with mild FDH limited entirely to the skin, who was never correctly diagnosed until he fathered a female infant with severe multisystem FDH.
