+ - Why Don't Some People Have Fingerprints?->

Submitted by sciencehabit

The condition is known as adermatoglyphia, and one scientist has dubbed it the "immigration delay disease" because sufferers have such a hard time entering foreign countries. In addition to smooth fingertips, they also produce less hand sweat than the average person. Now researchers have identified the genetic mutation behind the condition."
