Silver–Russell syndrome (SRS) is a rare congenital abnormality. The incidence ranges from 1 in 3000 to 100,000 live births. It is characterized by low birth weight, asymmetric limb, relative macrocephaly, high forehead, small triangular-shaped face with small jaws, and dental malocclusion. The etiology of SRS is still unclear, but genetic alterations and family history have been attributed. The diagnosis of SRS is mainly based on physical characteristics and appearance. This article enlightens clinical versatility in dental features of SRS in two siblings and discusses the orthodontic management for dental malocclusion in the elder one.
