Treacher Collins syndrome (Mandibulofacial dysostosis) is characterized by deafness, hypoplasia of facial bones (mandible, maxilla and cheek bone), antimongoloid slant of palpebral fissures, coloboma of the lower lid and bilateral anomalies of the auricle. Hypoplasia of the facial bones may be the first indicator of the disorder. We present a case report of Treacher Collins syndrome with their extraoral findings, intraoral findings and their treatment plan. We have also included the various etiological factors, clinical diagnostic aids, and multidisciplinary team approach.
