Abstract: Isolated bilateral macrodontia of the mandibular second premolars is a rare condition. We believe that the case reported here is the first in which isolated bilateral macrodontia of the mandibular second premolars presents with numerous dental anomalies affecting other teeth. A 14-year-old boy was referred to the Paediatric Dental Department of King’s College Hospital with a partially erupted mandibular left second premolar. Clinical and radiographic examination subsequently revealed macrodontia of both mandibular second premolar teeth and multiple other dental anomalies. This report discusses the presentation and multidisciplinary management of this case.

Clinical relevance: This case report describes an already rare condition made even more extraordinary owing to its presentation with multiple other dental anomalies.
