Abstract

Introduction: The combined findings of oligodontia, mandibular hypoplasia and congenital malformation of the tongue (hypoplasia) is relatively rare in children. This presentation discusses the case of a 6-year-old female patient who presented to the dental clinic at The Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, Missouri for emergent care secondary to gross dental caries. Additional findings at the initial visit were that of oligodontia, microglossia, micrognathia, and mandibular hypoplasia. A review of the medical history indicated that due to the physical anomalies noted at birth, a genetic microarray was completed indicating some variants of unknow clinical significance. As these forms of pathology uncommonly present without a connection to a specific syndrome, further genetic evaluation is warranted. This presentation reviews the clinical findings noted in the case, potential treatment options for future care and the importance of appropriate collaborative care with other medical professionals.
