Hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia has several different inheritance patterns. Most cases are caused by mutations in the EDA gene, which are inherited in an X-linked recessive pattern. EDAR mutations can have an autosomal dominant or autosomal recessive inheritance pattern, while EDARADD mutations have an autosomal recessive inheritance pattern.
