Özet

Oral-facial-digital syndrome is characterized by heterogeneous clinical features involving malformations of the face, oral cavity, and digits. The syndrome has been reported only in women, suggesting that it is lethal in males. Affected females have malformations of the oral cavity (cleft palate, lip and tongue, abnormal dentition, and hamartomas), face (hypertelorism and milia), and digits (syndactyly, brachydactyly, and polydactyly). In this article, we report the orthodontic treatment of a 21-year-old woman with oral-facial-digital syndrome. (Am J Orthod Dentofacial Orthop 2012;141:S110-8)
