    A rare ectodermal dysplasia with the acronym CHANDS (Curly Hair, Ankyloblepharon, Nail Dysplasia Syndrome) was described by Baughman (1971) as being a new autosomal dominant condition. Additional pedigree data obtained after the original report indicate that the mode of inheritance is more likely to be autosomal recessive, with an instance of quasi-dominant transmission as a result of multiple consanguineous matings in the family. These data are provided in this report.
