ABSTRACT
Rieger syndrome is a rare, autosomal dominant genetic disorder characterized by malformation of the anterior chamber of the eye(goniodysgenesis) coincident with hypodontia. It may also be accompanied by a spectrum of dental, craniofacial and somatic anomalies. Mutations in paired-like homeodomain transcription factor2(PITX2) are associated with the syndrome, and its frequency in the general population has been estimated to be 1 : 200,000. In the present case, the patient, 4 year 7 month-old female, had posterior embryotoxon and polycoria. The maxilla was retrusive in cephalometric radiography. She had congenital missing on #52, #62 and some tooth germs of permanent tooth were not detected in panoramic radiography. The purpose of this paper is to report the dental and craniofacial findings and review the pertinent literature through this case.
