It is also known as Marie and Sainton's disease, mutational dystosis or cleidocranial dysostosis. A 10-year-old female patient reported to the Department of Pedodontics and Preventive Dentistry, Sathyabama University, Dental College and General Hospital, Chennai, Tamil Nadu with the chief complaint of unerupted permanent teeth.
