Introduction: Ellis-van Creveld (EVC) syndrome is an uncommon genetic disease that can be diagnosed at any age. Observation: A case of EVC syndrome was reported in a young 3-year-old female patient presenting chondroectodermal dysplasia, polydactyly, congenital heart defects, damage to the oral mucosa and numerous dental alterations (number, form and structure). Oral management consists of teaching oral hygiene and the prophylactic filling of dental cracks. Discussion: EVC is an autosomal recessive disease. Its diagnosis is only based on clinical features and genetic studies. Conclusion: Dentists should be aware of this syndrome to avoid a late diagnosis and to facilitate a multidisciplinary management.
Key words: Ellis-van Creveld syndrome / genetic / polydactyly
