This study introduces a clinic case about Klinefelter’s Syndrome in a child followed for 10 years. This syndrome is a genetic alteration that affects male individuals characterized by an extra X chromosome (47, XXY). In 1996, his mother went to the Baby Clinic Service of the School of Dentistry of Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul, looking for help because her baby had Early Children Caries (ECC). The child was immediately included in the Baby Clinic’s Program, receiving educative, preventive and curative treatment, as well as diet and oral hygiene instruction, Atraumatic Restorative Treatment (ART) and preventive orthodontics. Nowadays, the child remains re- ceiving treatment in the Special Patient’s Clinic Program of our School. It can be concluded that a therapeutic program including ART and preventive orthodontics could propitiate a better quality of life a patient with this rare syndrome with malocclusion and caries activity.
