Neurofibromatosis is a relatively common dominantly inherited neurodermal dysplasia that affects many parts of the body including oral cavity. The patient, an 18-year-old girl diagnosed as neurofibromatosis Type-1 (NF1) exhibited four supernumerary premolars. In addition, panoramic radiograph of the patient showed enlarged right mandibular canal and foramen, unilocular radiolucent areas in the rami of the mandible, and increase in the dimension of coronoid notch on both sides of the mandible. The concomitant presentation of supernumerary teeth with NF1 reported here might be due to genetic linkage or could be a chance occurrence.
