Perks, Teleri / Popat, Hashmat / Cronin, Andrew J. / Durning, Peter / Maggs, Roger
Zimmermann-Laband syndrome (ZLS) is a rare autosomal disorder characterized by gingival fibromatosis, abnormalities of the nose and/or ears, hypoplasia
of the nails or terminal phalanges of the hands and feet, hyperextensibility
of joints, hepatosplenomegaly, hirsutism, and intellectual disability. The characteristics of the syndrome are highly variable and complicated. This paper reports a case of ZLS and the clinical manifestations encountered in relation to the current available literature. The comprehensive management of the patient's dentition is described, focusing on the orthodontic and surgical considerations clinicians should be aware of when treating patients with the syndrome.
