Abstract

Three cases of hypoglossia-hypodactyly syndrome without limb deformities are reported. All exhibited different degrees of tongue hypoplasia, micrognathia, retrognathia with a very narrow space between the left and right halves of the mandible, constricted isthmus, and only one lower incisor. Bone lengthening for the midline mandibular hypoplasia and orthodontic treatment were performed in the three cases with satisfactory results.
