Title:  SCN9A channelopathy associated autosomal recessive Congenital Indifference to Pain. A case report

Abstract:  Background Congenital Indifference to Pain (CIP) is a rare condition that inhibits the ability of patients to perceive physical pain but otherwise keeps normal sensory modalities. The condition has been mapped to an autosomal recessive trait to chromosome 2q 24.3 with mutations on the SCN9A gene. Case report A 2 year old Caucasian female presented with CIP. Bite injuries, tongue wounds and unaccounted dental trauma episodes were frequently reported. Preventive instructions and possible treatment modalities were discussed with the parents. Conclusion The cornerstone of treating CIP patients is an extensive preventive approach alongside regular oral examination at home by parents as well as routine recall appointments with dentists.
