Background: Oral facial digital syndrome (OFDS) is the name of a group of congenital diseases with involvement of face, oral cavity, digits and other organs. Renal involvement in OFD may be in form of polycystic kidney disease.

Case Presentation: This case report presents a patient with OFDS who developed end-stage renal disease (ESRD) at age of six without evidence of renal cyst in sonography.

Conclusions: It may be recommended to evaluate and follow up renal function in children with cleft lip and cleft palate especially when they have other anomalies such as polydactyly and oral lesions considering possibility of OFDS.

Keywords: Oral facial digital syndrome, End stage renal disease, Children

Implication for health policy/practice/research/medical education:

Renal involvement should be considered in all patients with multiple organ anomalies, especially in patients with cleft lip, cleft palate and polydactyly. Absence of renal cysts does not exclude kidney involvement and further follow up of patient’s growth, urine specific gravity, renal function and other sonographic findings such as renal echogenicity may be helpful.
