Abstract

We report on a black male patient from Central America with amelogenesis imperfecta, rough hypoplastic type, dental follicular hamartomas, and gingival hyperplasia. Although previous reports have described this association of amelogenesis imperfecta with hyperplastic follicular hamartomas or central odontogenic fibroma-like lesions in blacks from South Africa, we have noticed non-black patients in the literature with similar findings.
