Oral physician has always been challenged when it comes to diagnosing rare nonsyndromic cases because of the varied presentation of multiple dental abnormalities caused due to mutations in developmental regulatory genes. This coupled with skeletal abnormalities makes the task more difficult. But as we come across such rare constellation of findings, it makes the field more intriguing. Here, we report an extremely rare case of non syndromic occurrence of dental manifestations like multiple dens invaginatus, generalised microdontia, generalised hypoplasia, hypodontia, pulp stones and widening of pulp chamber along with skeletal findings of bilateral syndactyly of legs and brachydactyly of hands and legs. Although many non syndromic cases have been reported in the literature, the unusual occurrence of findings in the present case is being reported for the first time.
