Cleidocranial dysplasia (CCD) is a rare autosomal dominant skeletal disorder, characterized by delayed closure of anterior fontanelle, absent or hypoplastic clavicles, dental problems, and short stature. Usually, the presenting complaints are open anterior fontanelle and dental abnormalities. We hereby present a 5-year-old Indian child who presented to us with the complaints of persistently open anterior fontanelle and short stature. A detailed, thorough examination and high degree of suspicion in a child presenting with persistent open fontanelle has a great importance in the diagnosis of a genetic syndrome like CCD.
