YAKOOB, Z  e  NEL, C. Focal dermal hypoplasia - a radiographic case report. S. Afr. dent. j. [online]. 2020, vol.75, n.4, pp.208-210. ISSN 0375-1562.

Focal dermal hypoplasia (FDH) is an unusual X-linked dominant disorder that affects ectoderm and mesoderm derived tissues with females affected in 90% of cases. A case report ofa12 year old female diagnosed with FDH is presented. The dental significance of these patients are multifactorial and dental management should be focused on prevention and regular monitory visits. Restoration of functionality should be addressed by a combination of orthodontic, basic restorative and pros-thodontic disciplines. Due to the multisystem involvement and the dental complexities of patients suffering from FDH a multidisciplinary approach is required for optimal patient care.
