Hay-Well syndrome (AEC). Most infants with this autosomal dominant disorder caused by mutation in the TP63 gene are born with generalized erythematous and scaly skin. There may be significant erosions as noted on the scalp and buttocks in the infant represented in Figs. 14-38 and 14-39. The erosions can lead to scarring and hair loss.
