Anencephalic infant with cleft palate and natal teeth: A case report
MetadataShow full item record
Objective: Natal/neonatal teeth are very common in children with complete unilateral and bilateral cleft lip and palate. This article outlines a patient with intrauterine growth retardation, anencephaly, atrial septal defect, ventricular septal defect, two maxillary first natal incisor teeth, cleft palate, short neck, low-set ears, hypertelorism, retrognathia, and simian-line on the right hand. There is no conclusive evidence of a correlation between these findings and a known syndrome, suggesting that this case may be a hitherto undefined clinical combination with neonatal teeth.
