Crouzon's syndrome is a rare genetic disorder characterized by distinctive craniofacial malformations. The disease is characterized by premature synostosis of coronal and sagittal sutures which begins in the 1st year of life. Herein, we report a case of this rare entity, a 12-year-old girl with Crouzon's syndrome, who displayed dysmorphic skull and facial features such as craniosynostosis, hypertelorism, exophthalmia, external strabismus, short upper lip, midfacial hypoplasia with a hypoplastic maxilla, and relative mandibular prognathism. The dentist can play an integral role in the multidisciplinary treatment the patients require. The genetic advising and an individual study of each case are essential to promote the improvement of the diagnosis. An early multidisciplinary approach is necessary, with specific therapeutic program aiming at the prevention of late diagnosis effects.
