Simultaneous occurrence of supernumerary teeth and hypodontia is rare. Both represent numerical alteration of human dentition. Hypohyperdontia appears to be more common in certain syndromes like cleft lip and palate, cleidocranial dysplasia, Down syndrome, etc. In the general population, its prevalence is rare. Teeth most commonly affected by hypohyperdontia are maxillary and mandibular mesiodens, second premolars mandibular central incisors and maxillary lateral incisors. Hypohyperdontia in the same arch is very rare. Here we described a case of a 12-year-old girl with hypohyperdontia. Radiographic examination revealed that she had mesiodens and agenesis of a maxillary lateral incisor and all four third molars.
