Abstract

Oculodentodigital dysplasia (ODDD), also known as oculodentoosseous dysplasia, is an extremely rare autosomal dominant disorder with high penetrance, intra- and interfamilial phenotypic variability, and advanced paternal age in sporadic cases. The incidence of this disease is not precisely known, with only 243 cases reported in the scientific literature, suggesting an incidence of around 1 in 10 million people. It is marked mainly by eye abnormalities, craniofacial dysmorphism, dental anomalies, hand and foot malformations, various skeletal defects, and mildly delayed mental development. Neurological changes may appear earlier in each subsequent generation. This case report describes a radiological diagnosis of ODDD based on physical appearance, clinical features and radiographic findings in a 16-year-old girl.
