We report a case of a patient with ectodermal dysplasia attributed to a heterozygous 321C>A mutation in WNT10A who developed overlying autoimmune mediated hair loss. To the best of our knowledge this is the first reported case of alopecia areata in a patient with WNT10A heterozygous ectodermal dysplasia. This case highlights the importance of considering multiple pathways of hair loss in patients with underlying genetic defects and raises the possibility of a shared genetic predisposition.
