      Six cases of amelogenesis imperfecta, of which two show hypoplasia and four show hypocalcification of the enamel, have been described. Both these forms of amelogenesis imperfecta may occur with or without a family history, and the deciduous dentition may or may not be affected. The low rate of caries incidence and the absence of any other ectodermal defects are to be noted. The effects of wear and staining from the mouth in hypocalcification have been described.
      Some of the cases described show unusual individual variations within this classification; one case shows arrested eruption, and this has been discussed.
