Med Oral Patol Oral Cir Bucal. 2019 Sep 01; 24(5):e630-e635.MO

Abstract

BACKGROUND

To evaluate oral, craniofacial and systemic characteristics of eight patients with Kabuki syndrome (KS), aged between 3 and 16 years old.

MATERIAL AND METHODS

in this retrospective study, medical records of all patients were reviewed for information on family history, growth and development, medications in use, general systemic complications and oral and craniofacial characteristics.

RESULTS

the medical alterations found included recurrent infections such as pneumonia and otitis media (n = 6), cardiovascular malformations (n = 4), kidney abnormalities (n = 2), epilepsy (n = 2) and visual deficiency (n = 2). The individuals exhibited dental caries (n = 5), agenesis (n = 5), delayed tooth eruption (n = 4), cleft lip/palate (n = 2) enamel hypoplasia (n = 2), fusion (n = 1) and microdontia (n = 1).

CONCLUSIONS

There was a great diversity of oral, craniofacial and systemic characteristic among the KS patients, suggesting that an inter-disciplinary approach should be taken for their dental treatment.
