Although Class II syndrome has been described and
classified by different authors we are aware of the
clinical need of a precise definition of its concomitant
characteristics in order to differentiate groups
with common features to establish treatment protocols.
This is the aim of this work. We have compared
the groups described by Moyers with the groups
that we have obtained after the application of a
binary dendogram and cluster analysis. The therapeutic
possibilities of the Class II syndrome are
described and each of the obtained groups is illustrated
by a clinical case.
