Ellis-van Creveld syndrome is a rare genetic disorder. It was first described by Richard Ellis and Simon van Creveld in 1940. The orofacial manifestations include multiple gingivolabial musculofibrous frenula, dental anomalies, hypodontia and malocclusion. Chondrodysplasia, polydactyly, ectodermal dysplasia and congenital heart defects also has been reported. Here we report such a case in an Indian child.
