Trichothiodystrophy (TTD) is a term introduced for sulfur-deficient brittle hair. Patients with trichothiodystrophy have brittle hair and nails (because of reduced content of cysteine-rich matrix proteins), ichthyotic skin, and physical and mental retardation. Approximately half of the patients display photosensitivity, correlated with a nucleotide excision repair (NER). for a discussion of nonphotosensitive trichothiodystrophy (TTDN). As is the situation with Cockayne syndrome no cases of skin cancer had been reported with trichothiodystrophy.
