Ectodermal dysplasias (ED) are rare and orphan genetic conditions affecting the development and/or homeostasis of two or more ectodermal derivatives, including hair, teeth, nails, and certain glands (new definition, Wright et al, 2019). ED group gather around 100 diseases. New definition and classification as well as management and new perspectives in care should be shared with the clinical and research community. For that reason, we propose a specific training course during the 8th international conference on ED.
