A linkage study of 24 families with hypohidrotic (anhidrotic) ectodermal dysplasia (HED) has been performed. The previously suggested linkage to DXYS1 has been confirmed, and linkage to probes DXS14 and DXS3 has been established. We suggest that the HED locus lies in the centromeric region between DXYS1 on the long arm and DXS14 on the short arm of the X chromosome, probably on proximal Xq.
