We report the case of an adolescent with hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia, who had obsessive‐compulsive disorder and was later diagnosed with body dysmorphic disorder (BDD). BDD is a highly distressing, adolescent‐onset disorder that may lead to social isolation, the development of comorbid mental health disorders and suicidality. Patients typically lack insight into their BDD and frequently present to dermatologists for medical treatment. In this paper, we address the challenges faced when working with patients with BDD.
