The characteristics of a 5-years old girl, referred to a multidisciplinary team for cleft lip and palate because of speaking problems, were diagnosed as Kabuki syndrome. The Kabuki syndrome is a congenital syndrome of unknown aetiology, diagnosed based on a combination of clinical findings. It is characterised by distinctive facial features, skeletal anomalies, dermatoglyphic abnormalities, developmental delay and mild to moderate mental retardation. Children with the syndrome often have oral manifestations such as cleft palate, missing permanent teeth and conic crowns of upper incisors. The Kabuki syndrome was first described regarding the Japanese population but it is now known to occur in many other races as well. In a recent publication, 20 Dutch patients with Kabuki syndrome were described.
