Figure 1.117. Cleft lip may be unilateral or bilateral and is often associated with a cleft palate. This normal infant has a mild unilateral cleft lip with a normal palate. The nose is flattened on the affected side. Cleft lips and palates may be seen in otherwise normal infants or in infants with syndromes or chromosomal abnormalities.

Figure 1.118. An example of a unilateral cleft lip with a normal palate in an infant with the popliteal pterygium syndrome. Note that the upper lip is indented to the left of the philtrum and the nose is flattened, but the defect does not extend into the alveolar process.

Figure 1.119. A mild bilateral cleft lip in an otherwise normal infant. In partial or complete unilateral or bilateral cleft lip, the line of clefting is paramedian and follows the ridge at either side of the philtrum.

Figure 1.120. A unilateral cleft lip and cleft palate in an otherwise normal infant. The unilateral cleft lip has extended to the nostril, which is flattened and deflected. Cleft lip and palate occur in many syndromes such as trisomy 13 and the ectro-dactyly-ectodermal dysplasia-cleft-ing syndrome (EEC syndrome).
