34 Ectodermal Dysplasias have genes that have been identified

Researchers have identified 34 genes that cause various Ectodermal Dysplasias (see list below). What does that mean for families of affected individuals? First, identifying the gene paves the way for genetic testing to confirm diagnosis. Also, the road to treatment begins with the identification of the gene causing the problem.
