Focal dermal hypoplasia -- oral and dental findings.Int J Paediatr Dent. 2003 Mar; 13(2):121-6.IJ
This report describes the case of an 8-year-old girl with focal dermal hypoplasia. As well as deformities affecting her hands and feet she had marked facial asymmetry, one diminutive eye and coloboma affecting the other. Intraorally, the patient had papillomas at the base of the tongue and tonsils. Her teeth showed irregular spacing, hypodontia, enamel hypoplasia, anomalous tooth form and delayed development. Radiographically, several teeth showed abnormal form. The patient's previous surgical experiences had adversely affected her behaviour and treatment has been limited to patient motivation and oral hygiene instructions, acclimatization, and simple restorative care.
