This report gives an overall view on the aspect of numerous diseases and symptom complexes affecting both eyes and teeth. The knowledge of these disorders enables the ophthalmologist to suspect and recognize certain types of dental malformation and enables the dentist to discover certain eye defects. Moreover, it is important that clinicians be aware that simultaneous eye and tooth defects may be the indication of possible disturbances in other, apparently unrelated, organs or systems. Because such disorders are frequently hereditary conditions, their early detection will aid in the diagnosis and treatment of other affected family members. This may also help the parents to cope with the disease and be of benefit to the infants because a cure may be forthcoming.
