Abstract

Abstract We have reported the case of a white girl with localized scleroderma affecting the dental and jaw development. The dentition affected is related to the area of the face involved, and, although it is too early to tell from radiographs, it is expected that there will be lack of development of the permanent successional teeth in the affected regions, probably with accompanying lack of normal alveolar bone growth.
