1/144. Ophthalmic findings in GAPO syndrome.

    BACKGROUND: The main manifestations of GAPO syndrome are growth retardation (G), alopecia (A), pseudoanodontia (P), and optic atrophy (O). CASES: This syndrome has been described in 21 patients from 16 different families. Four cases are from turkey and have been presented by Sayli and Gul. The purpose of our study is to document the cases from turkey and discuss the ophthalmological and neuro-ophthalmolgical findings of these and other reported GAPO cases. OBSERVATIONS: All patients in the literature and our 4 cases have severe growth retardation with delayed bone age in infancy, characteristic facial appearance (high and bossed forehead, midface hypoplasia), alopecia or severe hypotrichosis, and pseudoanodontia. optic atrophy was present in 1 of our cases and in 5 previous cases. glaucoma was present in 5 cases, including 2 of ours. Buphthalmia and keratopathy secondary to glaucoma were also observed. White eyelashes, seen only in our cases, may be a sign of "early senility." CONCLUSIONS: optic atrophy is not a constant finding in GAPO syndrome. glaucoma may accompany the ocular findings. This syndrome has been attributed to either ectodermal dysplasia or the accumulation of extracellular connective tissue matrix, due to an enzyme deficiency involved in its metabolism. Current studies show that an elastin defect and secondary changes in collagen may be important in the pathogenesis of the disease.

2/144. Prosthodontic rehabilitation of an anhidrotic ectodermal dysplasia patient: a clinical report.

    This clinical report describes the characteristics and prosthodontic restoration of a young male patient with anhidrotic ectodermal dysplasia. With proper care and prosthodontic treatment, the patient can enjoy a relatively normal life. It is important that the patient and his parents fully understand the dental problems related to his physiologic and psychologic conditions. The need for continued dental treatment is necessary.

3/144. Localized deficient root development associated with taurodontism: case report.

    Dentinal dysplasia type I (DDI) is a rare disturbance in dentin formation. This case report illustrates different radiographic features from other reported DDI cases in that only one quadrant (lower right posterior teeth) has the characteristic of DDI and both right and left upper molars exhibit taurodontism. This finding might be a variation of DDI. However, it is possible that this type of developmental defect could occur because of regionalized abnormalities in cellular function and proliferation as occurs in regional odontodysplasia.

4/144. Implant-surgical and prosthetic rehabilitation of patients with multiple dental aplasia: a clinical report.

    The expanded experience with oral implants and supplementary augmentation techniques has opened new possibilities for treating patients with oligodontia or anodontia with fixed prostheses. A problem in treating such patients is the need to place implants in growing maxillae or mandibles, as many of these patients are children or adolescents. When implant treatment is postponed until the patient is full grown, dysfunctions become manifest, which necessitates extensive surgical measures to achieve a fixed prosthetic restoration. This report illustrates the problems associated with different concepts for the treatment of multiple aplasia with implants. The results are based on the findings of 22 patients with oligodontia who underwent surgical treatment and were followed over a period of 5 years. Two controversially treated cases are presented.

5/144. The use of colored elastomeric "O"s as a motivational instrument for patients with anodontia: report of case.

    Complete and/or removable partial dentures are the most commonly selected treatment for the prosthodontic management of young patients who present with oligodontia or anodontia such as in the case of patients with ectodermal dysplasia. Bakri, Belanger and Nowak have reported on the different ways that these prostheses can be modified to ease the child's burden of growing up with missing teeth and having to wear prostheses that make them different from their peers. Some of their suggestions include the placement of diastemas, the use of artificial "baby" teeth and their subsequent replacement with permanent teeth to simulate the primary and mixed dentition stages. They have also recommended deleting primary teeth to mimic the normal exfoliation pattern. The purpose of this article is to report the attitude change and improvement in self-esteem experienced by two young girls from the simple addition of colored elastomeric molded "O"s to the orthodontic appliances placed on their prostheses.

6/144. ectodermal dysplasia with hypodontia in a set of Nigerian twins--a case report.

    A set of Nigerian male twins with features of ectodermal dysplasia born to apparently normal parents are presented. The main findings in both children were hypodontia, abnormally shaped teeth and hypotrichosis. The general treatment modalities of the condition, especially in a tropical environment, are discussed.

7/144. The use of tricalcium phosphate to preserve alveolar bone in a patient with ectodermal dysplasia: a case report.

    The prosthodontic management of the child with ectodermal dysplasia is made difficult because of the under-development of the alveolar ridges. This paper describes a case where tricalcium phosphate was placed in sockets immediately following the extraction of the primary incisor teeth to help maintain alveolar bone width, offering a valuable alternative treatment option in the prosthodontic management of the child patient with ectodermal dysplasia.

8/144. Rieger's syndrome: (oligodontia and primary mesodermal dysgenesis of the iris) clinical features and report of an isolated case.

    An 11-year-old female manifested bilateral prominent Schwalbe's line, iridal adhesions, displaced and irregular pupils. She had no evidence of juvenile glaucoma. The major nonocular finding in this patient was the congenital absence of her primary and permanent maxillary central and lateral incisors. Although missing or malformed teeth may occur in other conditions such as Down's syndrome, focal dermal hypoplasia syndrome, anhidrotic ectodermal dysplasia, chondroectodermal dysplasia, and incontinentia pigmenti, the clinician should include Rieger's syndrome in his differential diagnosis in patients with oligodontia in combination with malformation of the anterior chamber of the eye. Rieger's syndrome is a rare condition characterized by ocular and dental abnormalities, namely mesoectodermal dysgenesis of the iris and cornea of the eyes and hypodontia of the dentition. This report presents a sporadic case of Rieger's syndrome in an 11-year-old female and discusses the pertinent clinical features of this condition.

9/144. Implant anchorage for the occlusal management of developmental defects in children: a preliminary report.

    Congenital anomalies and developmental defects of the face and jaws often present orthodontic anchorage challenges in which the residual dentition cannot be adequately positioned for restorative objectives. This article presents a method of classification for the formulation of implant-based treatment protocols in children, reviews the application of implants in the developing dentition, and provides guidelines for occlusal treatment. Procedures performed according to the protocols outlined in this article will facilitate orthodontics and orthopedic movement and accelerate three-dimensional jaw movement by sutural distraction of basal bone.

10/144. Bilateral congenitally missing maxillary canines. A case report.

    Exclusive aplasia of maxillary permanent canines is extremely rare. There are only a few cases of this condition reported in the literature. This paper reports a case of bilateral congenitally missing canines in a healthy 11 year old male of Chinese origin. The article discusses problems in diagnosis and presents options in the management of such a case. The management option selected was the most appropriate for the family at the time of presentation.
