Case Study
The article presents a case report of a 29-year-old female for complete denture treatment with a craniofacial anomaly. Examination of the patient revealed exophthalmus, hypertelorism hypoplastic maxilla and syndactyly of hands and feets. The partial cleft in the palate stopped short of the nasal cavity. The partial cleft was packed with gauze before taking the impression and the post dam was scored on the resulting model.
