Cleidocranial dysostosis is a congenital condition that results from faulty development of membranous bones, mainly the clavicles and skull. The clavicular abnormality may range from a small defect in one clavicle to complete absence of both, but most frequently an absence of the central clavicular segment, as was seen in our patient. A review of the literature has revealed only one previous report a cleidocranial dysostosis syndrome.

KEY WORDS: syndrome, cleidocranial dysostosis, unerupted teeth.
