Congenital fusion of maxilla and mandible as an isolated occurrence is very rare. Syngnathia is often associated with other intra oral and maxillofacial anomalies. We present a rare condition of isolated complete bony fusion of maxilla and mandible in a neonate without any other associated anomaly.
