Abstract

Endemic fluorosis is a chronic, crippling, skeletal and dental disease caused by ingesting large amounts of fluoride either through water or rarely from foods of endemic areas. Although systemic disorders of fluorosis have a wide variety of appearances, little attention has been given to the spectrum of lenticular findings.
