Abstract

Aarskog syndrome is a rare syndrome with a typical triad of facial, digital and genital characteristics. Orthodontic treatment of a patient with Aarskog syndrome has not been documented in literature till date. This case report shows that an individual with Aarskog syndrome can be an excellent orthodontic patient and should not be excluded from the general patient population. A stable occlusion can be achieved with acceptable profile and soft tissue contours in these patients as well.
