KRT5 , POFUT1 , and POGLUT1 have been identified to be the causal genes of DDD.[sup][14] The histopathological change of DDD is very characteristic, showing dilated follicular, fingerlike projections called rete ridges, with thinning of the suprapapillary plates, resulting in an “antler-like” pattern and increased pigmentation of the basal layer.[sup][15] The histological change of the family 1 in the present study resembled DDD or suggested a coexistence of AI and DDD.
