Red List (low evidence)

Comment on list classification: Kept rating as Red after discussion with Helen Brittain: The established phenotype is of hypotrichosis with or without woolly hair. This is not an inclusion on this panel, except for where there is also keratoderma. The initial case reports in a Russian sub-population included 2 sisters out of 29 individuals who also had follicular hyperkeratosis. This phenotype is relatively prevalent in that population and therefore there is no clear evidence, aside from chance, to explain this potential link.
