A 3 year and 8 months old Chinese boy was referred for a consultation regarding his missing maxillary anterior teeth. He had a history of trauma to his primary maxillary anterior teeth due to a fall at the age of 16 months. Clinical examination of the patient indicated multiple carious lesions and inadequate oral hygiene. Radiographic examination revealed intrusion of the primary left lateral incisor, with evidence of damage to the permanent tooth germ. Subsequently, the patient was followed-up for almost six years during which his permanent maxillary left lateral incisor erupted exhibiting an unusual morphology. Clinically enamel hypoplasia and radiographically dens invaginatus were evident in affected tooth.

Complex neurobehavioral disorder characterized by distinctive facial features (FACIES), developmental delay and mental retardation. Behavioral phenotypes include sleep disturbance, maladaptive, self-injurious and attention-seeking behaviors. The sleep disturbance is linked to an abnormal circadian secretion pattern of MELATONIN. The syndrome is associated with de novo deletion or mutation and HAPLOINSUFFICIENCY of the retinoic acid-induced 1 protein on chromosome 17p11.2.
Formation or presence of a blood clot (THROMBUS) in the LATERAL SINUSES. This condition is often associated with ear infections (OTITIS MEDIA or MASTOIDITIS) without antibiotic treatment.
