The incidence of cases with a single maxillary central incisor is approximately 1 in every 50,000 live births. single median maxillary central incisor(SMMCI) may be a integral manifestation of any one of a number of syndromes. It has been reported an association with several midline disorders which have varied in severity. A SMMCI has also been reported as an isolated finding. But in some cases, it has been considered as an incomplete expression of autosomal dominant holoprosencephaly. So any patient who appears for treatment with a SMMCI should be referred for a detailed medical examination to exclude other associated systemic abnormalities and for mutation analysis to facilitate correct diagnosis and the provision of appropriate genetic counseling. Early orthodontic treatment is needed to minimalize emotional trauma of child. This case report was about three patients with a SMMCI as isolated finding. The purpose of these case reports was to present cases of single maxillary central incisor not associated with other disorders.
