Abstract:   (272 Views)
Oculofaciocardiodental (OFCD) syndrome is characterized by ocular, facial, cardiac, and dental abnormalities. Radiculomegaly affecting canines is pathognomonic dental finding. Dentists should be aware of the somatic anomalies potentially associated with radiculomegaly. We report a case of OFCDS and provide the description of the challenges in endodontic treatment of gigantic roots.
