Aim: The aim of this study was to rehabilitate a 12-year-old patient with hidrotic ectodermal dysplasia with removable partial denture.

Background: Ectodermal dysplasia (ED) is a hereditary disorder with abnormal ectodermal tissues. Most common oral findings include hypodontia and anodontia. Treatment options include removable partial denture (RPD), complete denture (CD), overdenture (OD) and implant supported prosthesis. Choosing a treatment plan is dependent on the age, growth pattern, and functional, biomechanical and esthetic demands of the patient with regard to save anatomy of the patient especially because the affected individuals are young.

Case Description: A 12-year-old boy with hidrotic ED that was formerly treated with RPD was referred to Shahed dental school to receive a new prosthesis. He had only 8 existing teeth. After making the primary and final impressions, the centric relation was registered, the teeth were arranged and the denture was processed and delivered.

Conclusion: The removable partial denture is still one of the treatment approach for treatment of patients with hidrotic ED.

Clinical Significance: The removable partial denture could be successful in treatment of young patients with hidrotic ED.
