Abstract

Achondroplasia is the most common form of skeletal dysplasia and is typically characterized by short stature and disproportionate limb shortening. It is inherited as an autosomal dominant trait with full penetrance and consistent expression. Here we report general and dental findings in a 12 year old boy with achondroplasia with emphasis on special considerations during dental treatment.
