The Smith-McCort syndrome (SMC), which was first described by Smith and McCort in 1958, is a rare form of osteochondrodysplasia, specifically a spondyloepimetaphyseal dysplasia. It is one of the rare syndromes that can present with skeletal dysplasia and mimic some of the common bone diseases. Enamel hypoplasia is a part of this disorder. Literature that describes the orofacial characteristics of this syndrome is lacking. Here we report a case of a 23-year-old female, who presented with characteristic orofacial features, along with skeletal abnormalities.
