I have learned that many of these symptoms are associated with something called hydrotic ectodermal dysplasia (also known as Clouston syndrome, a group of genetic syndromes involving the hair, teeth, and nails which includes extreme sensitivity to light, neurodevelopmental problems, and dysmorphic facial features).
The illness, known as hydrotic ectodermal dyspla-sia, also affects Bethan's nails, leaving them unusually thick and brittle.
