The purpose of this case report is to report the orthodontic surgical treatment and subsequent dental rehabilitation in two patients with Axenfeld-Rieger syndrome. Axenfeld-Rieger syndrome is a rare autosomal dominant condition characterized by ocular, dental, craniofacial, and periumbilical abnormalities. The treatment of two patients with various anomalies in Axenfeld-Rieger syndrome is described and discussed. Early recognition of the syndrome and referral during childhood to a specialized oral and maxillofacial surgery, special dental care, and orthodontic unit provide the optimal starting point for this complex treatment.
