Incontinentia pigmenti(IP), so called Block-Sulzberger syndrome is a rare genodermatosis that occurs almost in female infant; usually lethal in males, X-linked dominantly inherited disorder. IP is characterized by abnormalities of mesodermal and ectodermal tissues including eye, tooth, skin, nail, breast and hair as well as neurological deficiencies. Dental problems are congenital missing of teeth, delayed eruption, abnormal crown shape and so on. Here is a case of 6 year-old female with IP. She had congenital missing of primary and permanent teeth, delayed eruption, maxillary deficiency and extra cusps, resulting in unstable occlusion. Systemically, she had a history of operating eyes due to problem of retina and hyperpigmented macules on her trunk and extremities as typical character of IP.
