[An obscure anomaly: regional odontodysplasia].

In a 3-year-old child, acute dental abscesses in combination with clinical and radiographic impressions of a number of deciduous teeth indicated regional odontodysplasia as probable diagnosis. Histological examination of the removed deciduous teeth confirmed the diagnosis. Early determination of this regional developmental anomaly in the odontogenesis is of great importance for optimal guidance of the dental care of a patient with regional odontodysplasia.
