dc.description.abstract Pycnodysostosis is a rare disorder that was first described in 1962; however, it was only in 1996 that the defective gene was discovered, which led to a better understanding of this disease. This study reports and discuss a case of pycnodysostosis. In addition, a search of articles published in PubMed-Medline was performed. The case was a 13-year-old girl who was referred to a private clinic for dental treatment. Clinical examination showed midface hypoplasia, prominent cheeks, a high nasal bridge, beaked nose, spoon-shaped fingers, frontal bossing, open fontanelles and dental alterations, findings compatible with pycnodysostosis. Patients with this disease also suffer from fractures because of bone hardness with almost no elasticity, a fact that requires special care particularly in the case of children and adolescents. The diagnosis of pycnodysostosis is made based on clinical and radiographic findings. Clinicians should be aware of this disorder to provide adequate dental treatment. es
