enamel dysplasia with hamartomatous atypical follicular hyperplasia
Wednesday 9 February 2011
It is characterised by hamartomatous atypical follicular hyperplasia with central odontogenic fibroma (WHO-type)-like features attached to multiple impacted teeth, and with generalized enamel dysplasia showing features of hypoplastic amelogenesis imperfecta.
Other features associated with the syndrome, but not present in all reported cases, include open-bite malocclusion, gingival overgrowth, hypodontia, pulpal calcifications and aberrant root formation of the unerupted teeth.
It has been proposed to name this syndrome Enamel Dysplasia with Hamartomatous atypical Follicular Hyperplasia (EDHFH) syndrome.
