Infantile cortical hyperostosis (ICH), or Caffey's disease, has a low prevalence, is not easily recognized clinically, and is seldom reported in the primary care literature. A case of infantile cortical hyperostosis of the right mandible of a newborn is reported. Multiple radiographic tests, as well as bone biopsy, were necessary to establish a definitive diagnosis. The most striking features of this disease are presented, including the clinical and physical presentation, radiographic characteristics, and pathology.
