Is amelogenesis imperfecta an indication for renal examination?
Int J Paediatr Dent. 2007 Jan; 17(1):62-5.IJ

Abstract

BACKGROUND

The term 'amelogenesis imperfecta' (AI) describes a diverse group of hereditary conditions primarily affecting the quality and/or quantity of dental enamel.

CASE REPORT

This paper describes a case in which hypoplastic AI with delayed/failure of eruption of the permanent teeth was shown to be associated with renal calcification.

CONCLUSION

Given the importance of the renal involvement, the authors suggest that paediatric dentists consider referring all children with this dental phenotype for renal ultrasound examination.
