Riga-Fedes syndrome: natal or neonatal teeth associated with tongue ulceration. Case report.

A case of natal teeth associated with traumatic ulceration to the ventral surface of the tongue (Riga-Fedes syndrome) in a four week old boy is presented. On radiographic examination, two teeth, present at birth, were found to be early erupted deciduous lower central incisors. A family history of natal teeth, all involving both lower deciduous central incisors associated with trauma to the tongue during suckling, was elicited. The ulceration healed over a period of four weeks using an innovative conservative treatment regime, involving the use of Stomahesive Wafer. Four months later the only sign of any previous pathosis was a fibrous scar on the ventral surface of the tongue.
