Regional odontodysplasia (RO) is an uncommon developmental anomaly affecting a localized area of the dentition; which presents with distinctive clinical and radiographical findings. Clinically, the affected teeth are often grossly hypoplastic with abnormal morphology. They often tend to develop abscess soon after eruption. Radiographically, they have a typical "ghost-like" appearance. Although extractions are often required, in some milder cases the teeth may be retained for a long period. The treatment plan should be based on the degree of involvement as well as functional and esthetic needs in each case. This article describes a classical report of a 3.5-year-old female with RO.
