Many previous reports of the ectodermal dysplasias have lacked detailed description of the radiographic appearance of the teeth, particularly those appearing in the dermatologic literature, and hence the presence of the taurodont trait may have been missed. The trait has been shown to be associated with a number of other anomalies, many of ectodermal origin. This review serves to highlight the role dental defects and, in particular, taurodontism may play in both the detection and diagnosis of the aforementioned disorders. Increased awareness of its potential significance is recommended.
