Lacrimo-auriculo-dento-digital syndrome (LADD) is a rare autosomal dominant disorder arising from heterozygous mutations in the genes encoding fibroblast growth factor receptors two and three and the gene encoding the fibroblast growth factor 10. The characteristics associated with LADD are mainly related with hypoplasia or aplasia of lacrimal and salivary ducts, low cup-shaped ears, sensorineural or conductive hearing loss, abnormalities of teeth, and anomalies of the hands and feet. The purpose of this paper is to describe a 13-year-old female patient with a history of a blocked tear duct, mild hearing loss, congenitally missing teeth, tauro- dontism, and malformation of the fingers who was referred for a dental evaluation. She was diagnosed with LADD syndrome based on her clinical picture. (J Dent Child 2019;86(1):53-60)
