 Despite the frequent presence of all characteristic orofacial features and profound dental malocclusions there is very little to be found in the literature of maxillofacial surgeons to diagnose a case of Binder syndrome or also known as maxillo-nasal dysplasia or maxillo-nasal dysostosis. Nordenram., et al. recommended to delay any definitive orthodontic treatment in individuals with this syndrome up to the time when growth has ceased. For severe cases they also advise for grafting in the nasal area along with Le-Fort I and II osteotomy. Thus, in such cases the orthodontic treatment should go hand in hand with the surgical team hence opting for an ortho-surgical approach. The aim of the orthodontist in the post-surgical phase should be improvement of facial beauty, relieve crowding of the arches and their co-ordination and to obtain a Class I molar relationship.
