Title:  Otodental syndrome: a case presentation in a 6-year old child

Abstract:  Background Otodental syndrome is a rare condition characterised by globodontia, and sensorineural high frequency hearing loss. To date, only 20 cases of otodental syndrome have been reported. Case report A 6 year-old girl presented with a chief complaint of delay in the eruption of primary canines. Following clinical, radiographic and audiologic evaluations, the patient was diagnosed with otodental syndrome. Conclusion Globodontia is a diagnostic feature of the otodental syndrome, which often provides the path to discovery of the associated hearing loss. Missing teeth, arch-size discrepancies, chewing problems and teething disturbances are the other major complications.
