ABSTRACT

Treacher Collins syndrome (TCS) is autosomal dominant disorder that occurs approximately 1 in 25,000 to50,000 live births. The main signs of syndrome are hypoplasia of facial bone and microtia. One in third of themis associated with cleft palate and often shows dental hypoplasia. TCS patients need several number of surgerywith general anesthesia throughout their life time for recovery of function and esthetic. Endotracheal intubationof TCS patient is very difficult due to microstomia, retrognathia, choanal stenosis, and decreased oropharyngealairway. Therefore, general anesthesia of adolescent TCS patient with immature incisor roots has high risk ofcausing dental trauma. This case is regarding TCS patient who was referred to the Department of PediatricDentistry, Yonsei University for avulsed upper left central incisor during endotracheal intubation. The purposeof this report is to emphasize the usefulness of mouth guard to prevent dental trauma when endotracheal intubationis needed for TCS patient.
