Nails may be poorly developed, small, thick or thin, brittle, discoloured, cracked, or ridged. In addition, they may grow slowly, shed periodically, develop light spots, lines or patches and become infected by fungus or yeast.

The way in which the nails are involved may differ in the different types of Ectodermal Dysplasia and they may be completely normal.
