Adermatoglyphia (immigration delay disease[1]) is the absence of finger prints. It is a little challenging for those who use dermatoglyphics for human identification. Genetic causes are rare. SMARCAD1 gene mutations that affect the shorter skin-specific isoform of SWI/SNF-related matrix-associated actin-dependent regulator of chromatin subfamily A containing DEAD/H box 1 have been described as autosomal dominant. It has been reported in dyschromatosis universalis hereditaria (DUH) but in this case the gene responsible has not yet been characterised[2]. Acquired causes through trauma or burns are more common. Patients with Kindler syndrome can acquire it. Capecitabine can cause it[3].
