The Robinow's syndrome or “foetal face” is an extremely rare genetic disorder with characteristic craniofacial, skeletal, genital and oral findings. The main craniofacial deformities are frontal bossing, midfacial hypoplasia, hypertelorism, wide palpebral fissures and a short upturned nose. Skeletal features included short stature, mesomelic shortening limb, small hands with brachydactyly, camptodactyly and hemangioma. Genital hypoplasia is often observed. Oral findings included a triangular mouth, along upper lip philtrum, micrognathia, a shortened tongue with a devoid tongue tip, gingival hyperplasia, abnormal uvula, misaligned, crowded teeth and delayed tooth eruption. The purpose of the present case report is to describe the clinical findings and dental treatment in a 3-year-old female patient with a decline of 5years.
