Validation of Non-invasive Technologies for the Characterization of Sweat Gland Function in Patients With Recessively Inherited Hypohidrotic Ectodermal Dysplasia, Their Heterozygous Family Members and Healthy Controls

Brief Summary

      Hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia (HED) is a complex genetic disorder characterized by lack
      of sweat glands, sparse hair, and missing or malformed teeth. Inability to sweat may result
      in episodes of severe hyperthermia and cause sudden infant death. To assess sweat gland
      function in HED patients, the investigators will first quantify gland pores in a defined area
      of the palm and then stimulate the glands by pilocarpine followed by sweat collection in a
      special capillary for volume determination. This will be combined with non-invasive skin
      conductance measurement prior and subsequent to stimulation of the sympathetic nervous
      system. The data should provide a basis for genotype-phenotype correlation.
