Freeman-Sheldon syndrome is a rare hereditary disorder characterised by three basic abnormalities, namely
microstomia, camptodactyly with ulnar deviation of the fingers, and clubfoot. The majority of these patients have microstomia and dental
crowding, making oral hygiene difficult and increasing the risk of caries. Treatment of these patients requires a coordinated effort by a
team of specialists, including a paediatrician, an anaesthesiologist, a plastic surgeon, a paediatric dentist, and an orthodontist. Herein,
we describe dental problems of a child with Freeman-Sheldon syndrome and the treatment procedures performed.
