Abstract

Mulvihill-Smith syndrome (MSS) is a very rare disease that is characterized by short stature, a senile face with an under-developed lower half, microcephaly, multiple pigmented nevi, immunodeficiency, hearing loss, and high-pitched voice. We report on the oral manifestations and management of a 27-year-old woman with this syndrome, who underwent removal of a mandibular cyst and partial resection of the tongue.
