Ectodermal dysplasia is a hereditary disorder that occurs due to consequence of disturbances in the ectoderm of the developing embryo. It is usually accompanied by lack of sweat glands and a partial or complete absence of primary and/or permanent dentition. A case report illustrating the prosthetic rehabilitation by flexible and removable partial denture for a girl child of 9 years with Ectodermal dysplasia associated with congenitally missing primary and permanent teeth, mid facial defect and dental caries is presented. However oral rehabilitation of such case particularly in a child is often difficult, treatment should be accomplished by a multidisciplinary team.
