Abstract

On routine examination of a case of Waardenburg's syndrome apart from the usual features of the disorder, partial anodontia involving both the lower lateral incisors was evident.

The interesting association of partial anodontia and Waardenburg's syndrome is discussed along with relevant available literature.
