Abstract
Patients with cat cry or “cri-du-chat” syndrome often present with hallmark signs of the condition. The purpose of this manuscript is to report the findings observed in skin and oral mucosa which produced high morbidity in a 19 year-old female patient with cat cry syndrome, considering the scarce descriptions of the lesions on these anatomical sites. Nutritional, neurological and dermatological manifestations are described; laboratory findings are also included. The impact of clinical findings on inadequate nutritional status of patient is discuss. The approach is emphasized in order to improve the intraoral diagnoses, management and quality of life of this patient.
