Introduction: A Pierre Robin syndrome occupies an important space in front of the odontological field, especially for its peculiar characteristics determined by a series of anomalies. Objective: The main objective of the study is to present a literary review about the characteristics of the syndrome and its various possibilities of treatment. Methodology: The method used in the preparation of this work was the analysis of articles available in digital platforms, selection of contents related to the theme, obtaining a broader and interdisciplinary view of the syndrome. Results and Discussion: Although there is no specific treatment defined for the syndrome, it is possible through surgical methods or procedures (mandibular distraction, nasopharyngeal intubation, postural treatment, among others) to achieve a significant improvement in the patient’s quality of life when he is treated according to your individual needs. Conclusion: Therefore, in the Pierre Robin sequence, although there is no cure for the pathology, we conclude that with the appropriate treatments is possible to reduce some symptoms, so providing a better quality of life for the patient.
