Hypertrichosis, Congenital Generalized, With Or Without Gingival Hyperplasia; Htc3

Description

Extreme hirsutism with gingival fibromatosis follows a dominant pattern of inheritance (Weski, 1920; Garn and Hatch, 1950). There is no necessary relationship between the age of development of the gingival changes and the hypertrichosis. The latter may be present at birth but often appears at puberty (Anderson et al., 1969).For a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of congenital generalized hypertrichosis, see HTC1 (OMIM ).
