I've had the privilege of knowing the amazing Tammy Lirette family and there are three children born to Emil and Eleanor Lirette and none of the three children, 2 Boys 1 girl, have fingerprints or Footprints. Their hands and feet are extremely sensitive due to the lack of the course skin that make up our fingerprints and footprints. Also they have an abnormal growth of the eyebrows and eyelashes. Their eyebrows tend to grow down and long and their eyelashes grow two or three rows deep and inside the edge of the eyelid, which causes some problems for them. This first born child of each of the three Lirette children we're born without fingerprints or footprints. The rest of their children we're born with footprints and fingerprints and normal eyebrow and eyelash growth. This is a unique phenomenon that I have never heard of or seen before, I have experienced firsthand the complications that arise with the lack of the fingerprints and Footprints, such as working for the federal government with no fingerprints or joining the armed forces with no fingerprints not to mention the issues with their allies such as not being able to wear contact lens due to the extra row of eyelashes inside the lower eyelid. I was in love, as would Tammy Lirette Meshreky, to find out the real cause of this phenomenon.

My mother has no finger prints. Some time back in past she had them but now they seem to be disappeared. We need her finger prints to get a passport for her but without finger prints it is not possible

I also was born without finger or toe prints. My Dad is the same way. To our knowledge, no one else in our family is like that. I have an older brother (14 months older) who is my exact opposite and he has fingerprints. I don't really have any other things that are different expect for the fact that my palms and feet rarely get sweaty. Also, there are alot more lines on my palms. (Is that where my fingerprints went?) ;) My hands and feet are drier then most, so I am assuming this is all related.

I was also born without fingerprints or feetprints. There are a few other adnormalities I have noticed about myself such as abnormal growth of the eyebrow and eyelashes. I am afraid, though, that I have not yet discovered everything that came with the "no-fingerprints" package, because I am the first male in my family to get the gene. It started with my grandmother and moved to both of her daughters. Then from my mom to me and my brother and my aunt to her child.

The subject of fingerprints is primarily concerned with the friction skin that forms into patterns on both the hands and the feet. The science acknowledges that some people will be born with conditions that are not normal. A condition known as displaysia may be what you are experiencing. It is rare but not unknown. The individual friction ridge units do not align with each other to form patterns. I would suggest you take a set of inked impressions of your hands and feet. A simple way of doing this is available if you don't have access to someone with the equipment. Once you have the impressions it would be easier to determine the real situation. If you don't have any evidence of friction ridge units, don't despair there are recorded examples of people in similar a position, but once again a rare phenomina. Let me know if you need help with taking your impressions. Regards. Les Bush

We know that, statistically, being born without ridges is rare. The reason why this condition occurs isn't necessarily fully understood. We know that ridges align on the fetus during the 10th to 16th week of fetal life, and arrange based on the lines of tension present across the surface of the skin at that time. It could be that ridges formed on your fingers and feet at a later time, or it could be that there was a pause in growth rate during that time period that caused the tension that would have been across the surface of the skin to be significantly less. Whatever the reason, there were other factors in play that probably led to the lack of friction ridges. If that were the case, I would expect there might be some other unique aspects to fetal development that would manifest themselves in later adult life. For example, teeth develop at the same time and go through many of the same developmental phases that friction ridges go through. Dr. William Babler, who has extensively studied friction ridge development, is currently interested in, and I believe pursuing, research in this area. Do you have a unique dental/other medical history also?

I was born without fingerprints or feetprints. What are the chances? and why.
