A 5-year-oldfemale patient reported to the department of Pediatric Dentistry with a chief complaint ofinability to eat due to multiple carious teeth in the mouth. Various intra oral as well as extra oral features pointed towards a clinical diagnosis of Freeman Sheldon syndrome (FSS) and hence a genetic testing was advised. An exome based analysis for relevant genesindicated absence of any alleles of clinical relevance. This suggests that the patient belongs to the minority group of close to 7% subjects that present clinical features of FSS without genetic defect in the related genes. Due to the multiple treatment procedures needed, a full mouth rehabilitationwas carried out for the patient successfully, under general anesthesia.
