Rieger’s syndrome: A case report


PMID: 9573866

Rieger’s syndrome is a rare autosomal-dominant disorder characterized by dental, ocular, and periumbilical abnormalities. Essential ocular features include goniodysgenesis, which leads to increased intraocular pressure and subsequent glaucoma and visual loss. Dental findings include midfacial hypoplasia and the absence of primary and permenet incisors and seond premolars.

This article describes a case of Rieger’s syndrome in a 9-year-old child and emphasizes the need for comprehensive oral rehabilitation.
