Hypodontia in Beare-Stevenson syndrome: an example of dental anomalies in FGFR-related craniosynostosis syndromes.

Author information

UCSF School of Dentistry, San Francisco, California, USA.


The authors report a new case of Beare-Stevenson syndrome (BSS) characterized by cutis gyrata, craniosynostosis, acanthosis nigricans, ear defects, a prominent umbilical stump, and midface hypoplasia. The patient had dental findings of natal teeth and hypodontia of the primary and permanent teeth. This is the second patient with BSS syndrome to be reported with hypodontia and natal teeth; the first patient was described by Beare in 1969. The authors review the current literature to investigate the relationship between dental anomalies and fibroblast growth factor receptor-related mutations in BSS and other craniosynostosis syndromes such as Apert, Crouzon, and Pfeiffer.
