Focal dermal hypoplasia (also known as "Goltz syndrome") is a form of ectodermal dysplasia.[1]:573

It is also known as Goltz-Gorlin syndrome, after Robert Goltz and Robert Gorlin.[2]

It has been associated with PORCN gene mutations on the X chromosome.[3]

The differential diagnosis of focal dermal hypoplasia (Goltz) syndrome includes autosomal recessive Setleis syndrome due to TWIST2 gene mutations; a syndrome of focal dermal hypoplasia, morning glory anomaly, and polymicrogyria; incontinentia pigmenti; oculocerebrocutaneous syndrome; Rothmund-Thomson syndrome; and MLS (microphthalmia with linear skin defects) syndrome caused by deletions or point mutations in the HCCS gene.
