We report the case of a young boy with fine hair, mild nail dysplasia, blocked nasolacrimal ducts, absence of central incisors, bilateral oligodactyly of feet and anal stenosis. His father showed the same spectrum of anomalies with mild expression. He had mild nail dysplasia, blocked nasolacrimal ducts, inferior dental cysts with consequent premature tooth loss, frequent dental decays consequent to enamel abnormality and cutaneous syndactyly of the second and third right toe. The acro-dermato-ungual-lacrimal-tooth syndrome was suspected and molecular analysis of the P63 gene was performed, but no mutation was found. Although P63 gene analysis was negative, we think that both cases show clinical overlap with the acro-dermato-ungual-lacrimal-tooth syndrome and confirm the wide expression of this condition, even in the same family.
