Ankyloblepharon-ectodermal defect-cleft lip and/or palate (AEC syndrome, also known as Hay-Wells syndrome) is an autosomal dominant disease caused by mutation in the p63 gene that is primarily characterized by facial clefting, presence of ankyloblepharon, ectodermal dysplasia, and scalp erosion. Scalp erosion is perhaps the most debilitating manifestation of AEC due to its problematic treatment that is fraught with failure given the underlying pathology of the p63 mutation causing dysfunctional… Expand
