Nager's acrofacial dysostosis is a rare congenital anomaly in which mandibulofacial dysostosis is seen in combination with limb deformities, particularly hypoplasia of the radial aspect of the hand. A boy with a severe manifestation of this syndrome is presented. Deformities include severe bilateral mandibular hypoplasia with trismus, malar hypoplasia, downward sloping palpebral fissures, high-arched hard palate, absent soft palate, external auditory and middle ear abnormalities and bilateral hand deformities. The diagnosis and treatment difficulties in this patient are discussed in light of those reported in the literature. An interdisciplinary team approach to the management of patients with Nager syndrome is emphasized.
