Amy, I don't know anyone with these disorders, but I have a hypothesis for you. Since many rare disorders are x-linked (on the x chromosome), your son ended up having 3x the chance of receiving an x-linked disease. Do you know if the other conditions are x-linked or not?

I hope you find some answers

i know that hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia is x-linked and autosomal recessive
and job syndrome is autosomal recessive disorder so id Ectodermal dysplasia so i guess there is a link. i didnt think of it like that thanks
