This paper describes the ultrastructure of the affected enamel and the clinical features in two siblings with the syndrome of nephrocalcinosis and amelogenesis imperfecta. Nephrocalcinosis was diagnosed by intravenous pyelography, and confirmed by ultrasonography and CT scan. Amelogenesis imperfecta AI was diagnosed clinically and histologically. Light microscopy showed that the affected enamel surfaces were rough and the enamel was hypoplastic and mainly positively birefringent. Scanning… CONTINUE READING
