A novel treatment strategy for eyebrow transplantation in an ectodermal dysplasia patient

Background

Ectodermal dysplasia (ED) is a hereditary syndrome which affects the ectodermal layer and thus appendages originating from this layer like hair, teeth, and sweet glands. The hairs of the scalp and eyebrows are sparse and broken and sometimes absent in ED patients. We reported a case of ED who underwent successful hair transplantation for her eyebrows

Case Report

A 17-year-old female with previously known Ed referred to our clinic because of absent lateral eyebrow hairs. She also had hypodontia (she lacked incisor teeth) and hypohydrosis. We designed a hair transplantation procedure for the lateral third of her eyebrows with follicular unit transplantation (FUT) method. We selected the occipital part of the scalp as the donor. After 6 months and 2 years follow-up, the patient was quite satisfied with her appearance

Conclusions

The facial appearance of ED patients could be corrected well enough by hair transplantation methods
