The article presents results of a concise analysis of domestic and foreign literature addressing the problem of determining of distinctive diagnostic features in patients with Clouston syndrome as an orphan disease rarely encountered in clinical practice of dentistry. A clinical case of effective orthopaedic rehabilitation of a 10-years-old patient with Clouston syndrome and congenital edentulism using minimally invasive orthopaedic dentistry measures: removable dentures application using shape memory materials is presented. Technological peculiarities and advantages of the chosen approach to treatment are described. Photographic documents of orthopaedic dental treatment results including long-term results within the follow-up period of 10 years are presented providing strong evidence of effective aesthetic, functional and social rehabilitation of the patient. Detailed analytical conclusion is drawn according to the study results.
