Congenital maxillomandibular syngnathia is a rare disorder. It is usually seen in association with various syndromes such as Van der Woude, popliteal pterygium syndrome, or in association with other defects. Isolated case reports of bony fusion of jaws are sparse. We report an isolated case of congenital fusion of the mandible and maxilla in a newborn baby and describe the clinical and radiological features of this anomaly. A brief review of literature is also presented.
