Author information

Department of Paediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics, Jordan University Hospital, Amman, Jordan.


We present a rare case of a developmental anomaly called regional odontodysplasia or 'ghost teeth' in an 8.5-year-old Jordanian girl. The anomaly affected both the mandibular primary and permanent incisors, and the canines bilaterally. The maxillary teeth were unaffected. This is the first case of the anomaly to be reported in Jordan. The clinical, radiographic and histological features are reviewed. The management of affected patients is discussed.
