Int J Paediatr Dent. 2001 Mar;11(2):131-4. doi: 10.1046/j.1365-263x.2001.00231.x.


Short stature and developmental delay may be observed in many genetic conditions and well-defined syndromes. A 7-year-old girl presented with the non-specific findings of subtle dysmorphism, short stature and developmental delay. Although a genetic syndrome was suspected, a definitive diagnosis was not made until the dental findings of KBG syndrome were recognised, namely grossly enlarged maxillary permanent central incisors and hypodontia.
