Abstract:
Incontinentia Pigmenti (Bloch-Sulzberger syndrome) is an uncommon genodermatosis that usually affects female infants. The condition is characterized by four cutaneous stages and is frequently associated with dental, ocular, central nervous system and structural anomalies. A large case series of seven patients, all female, who presented to the Department of Paediatric Dentistry at the Eastman Dental Hospital over the last 16 years is reported. The dental features of these cases were typical and included missing teeth, microdontia and delayed eruption. In two of the seven cases, both maxillary canines were palatally impacted.
