Frank-ter Haar syndrome is a genetic disease that is transmitted by autosomal recessive pattern with characteristic features such as megalocornea or glaucoma, a prominent coccyx, heart defects, developmental delays, brachycephaly, a wide anterior fontanel, finger flexion deformities, full cheeks and micrognathia. Dentomaxillofacial features of this syndrome are not well documented in the literature. We present of a 21-year-old male with Frank-ter Haar syndrome and some features that may be linked with this syndrome not reported before in the literature.
