We present computed tomography (CT) findings of a boy with lacrimo-auriculo-dento-digital (LADD) syndrome. Bilateral lacrimal glands were not detected and CT imaging of this abnormality in LADD syndrome has not been reported before. Despite suggestions from previous reports of multiple temporal bone abnormalities resulting in hearing losses in these patients, only minor temporal bone abnormalities were seen in our deaf-mute patient. Dysplasia of salivary glands was noted. CT findings of head and neck abnormalities in LADD syndrome are discussed.
