Objective: Describe the different findings presented by the ectodermal dysplasia, ectrodactyly and clefting syndrome and provide information to help you know what changes are related to the dysplasia itself and which are secondary. Case report: A mother and daughter with a diagnosis of ectodermal dysplasia, ectrodactyly and clefting syndrome was reviewed, both showed an absence of the ducts of Meibomian glands with a predominantly evaporative dry eye. In addition, the mother has a central leucoma with superficial vascularization. Conclusions: Ectodermal dysplasia, ectrodactyly and clefting syndrome can cause corneal vascularization secondary to chronic alterations of the ocular surface associated to absence of Meibomian gland orifices with tear film lipid layer deficiency, cicatricial conjuntivitis, and limbal stem cell deficiency; causing decreased visual acuity in early adulthood.
