ABSTRACT

Toriello Carey syndrome is a rare recessive autosomal disease whose clinical manifestations are more evident in males. Some authors report that the general characteristics of this disease are agenesis of the corpus callosum, mental disability, convulsions, atrial septal defect, pulmonary artery stenosis, pyloric stenosis, and hypospadias. Facial and cranial alterations may occur, including hypertelorism, telecanthus, divergent strabismus, malformed ears, anteverted nares, retrognathism, and cleft palate. This paper reports on a 13-year-old male with Toriello Carey syndrome and leucoderma, and describes his oral problems and his dental care.
