Venkatesh Vamanrao Kulkarni, Prachi Baldawa, Snehal Nahar, Sneha Desai, Jay Chamele


Cleidocranial dysplasia is a rare autosomal dominant condition with generalized dysplasia of bone, characterized by delayed closure of cranial sutures, hypoplastic or aplastic clavicles, short stature, dental abnormalities and a variety of other skeletal abnormalities. In this case report, we describe an otherwise healthy 11 year-old male child with a chief complaint of missing anterior maxillary teeth.
