Enamel hypoplasia is the most common abnormality of development and mineralisation of human teeth. The lesion is characterised by a quantitative defect in enamel tissue resulting from an undetermined metabolic injury to the formative cells—the ameloblasts. Clinically, enamel hypoplasia is seen as a roughened surface with discreet pitting or circumferential band like irregularities which posteruptively acquire a yellow brown stain.
