Cleft of the Lower Lip: A Case Report

W Ardill

Abstract


Median mandibular clefts vary in their presentation. They may be associated with other major anomalies and are usually treated by primary surgical lip repair under general anesthesia with a delayed repair of the bifid mandible. This is a brief case presentation of an unusual congenital anomaly called median cleft of the lower lip and mandible or inferior gnathoschisis.
Key Words. Lower lip cleft, family history
