ABSTRACT
Noonan syndrome is a congenital developmental disorder characterized by short stature, facial dysmorphia, congenital heart defects and skeletal anomalies, with as estimated incidence of between one per 1000 and one per 2500 live births. The aim of our study is to present a case of dental surgical treatment of a child with such disorder. It is widely reported that children with mental disabilities receive less dental and medical care than their nondisabled counterparts. Because of this problem, it seems justified to describe the procedures of treating such children with dental issues, basing on a case of a girl with Noonan Syndrome.
