A 17 year-old female who presented for treatment of grossly carious lower first molar teeth had multiple features of Focal Dermal Hypoplasia (FDH). These included enamel pitting and hypoplasia, anomalies of shape, size and positioning of teeth, as well as soft tissue papillomas and telangiectasis of tongue. A case report and a synopsis of the syndrome (FDH) are presented, the oral aspects of the condition are reviewed and the management of the complex dental anomalies is discussed.
