Robinow's syndrome (Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man [OMIM] 268310), or fetal facies syndrome, is a rare genetic disorder causing autosomal dominant and recessive forms. This syndrome includes a series of anomalies such as short stature, characteristic facial dysmorphism (fetal facies), genital hypoplasia, and mesomelic brachymelia. The purpose of the present case is to describe the orofacial manifestations of the syndrome in a pediatric patient: craniofacial features, triangular mouth and a long upper lip philtrum, ankyloglossia, a shortened tongue devoid of tongue tip, a geographic tongue, arched palate, gingival hyperplasia, dental abnormalities (misaligned and crowded teeth), and delayed tooth eruption.
