Weyers acrofacial dysostosis (Curry-Hall syndrome) is a rare autosomal dominant skeletal dysplasia manifest by nail dystrophy, oral and dental anomalies, polydactyly of the hands and feet, and mild short stature. We report an 11-year-old boy who presented with onychodystrophy, supernumerary tooth, hypodontia or agenesis of teeth, hyperplastic labial frenulum, polydactyly of the hands and feet, and mild short stature. There was dystrophy of the nail plates of the great toes of both feet. The other nail plates were also affected to a lesser degree, and the toenails are more severely affected than the fingernails. According to her mother, the child's dystrophic nails were present since birth. Examination of his scalp showed normal hair quantity, quality, and structure. There was no history of sweat gland dysfunction. The clinical findings of our patient are consistent with the features of Weyers acrofacial dysostosis.
