Amelogenesis imperfecta (AI) is a group of hereditary disorders that affect the quality and/or quantity of dental enamel. Hypoplastic AI can occur per se or in a variety of ectodermal syndromes and metabolic disorders. Enamel renal syndrome (ERS) is a very rare disorder associating hypoplastic AI with nephrocalcinosis. Since nephrocalcinosis is often asymptomatic, the orodental findings and dental radiographic features play a key role in the diagnosis of this extremely rare inherited disorder. This paper describes the orodental manifestations of ERS in siblings who were born of consanguineous parents.
