  57. 61. ORAL MANIFESTATIONS <ul><li>Both deciduous and permanent dentition show pigmentation, usually brown. More intense in deciduous teeth. </li></ul><ul><li>Under Wood’s UV ray, teeth show a striking red fluorescence. </li></ul><ul><li>Ground sections show porphyrin pigments deposited in enamel, dentin and cementum. </li></ul>
