Ackerman syndrome is a familial syndrome of fused molar roots with a single canal (taurodontism), hypotrichosis, full upper lip without a cupid’s bow, thickened and wide philtrum, and occasional juvenile glaucoma.[1] It was described by James L.

It can also refer to interstitial granulomatous dermatitis.[3][4]
