  • Thus, it tends to grow outward and away from the lateral segments, which then tend to collapse medially. Attachment of the lip to close the cleft then creates a band of lip tissue which restrains this forward growth of the central portion.[hawaii.edu]

  • Type-specific sonographic features include: type III: may be seen as a premaxillary echogenic mass 8 Ancillary sonographic features there can be polyhydramnios if the defect is severe and impairs swallowing Treatment and prognosis The overall prognosis[radiopaedia.org]
  • The prognosis for a child with unilateral cleft lip and palate is generally good. They usually learn to take bottle feedings easily with a cleft palate nipple, and learn to control the escape of fluids through the nose.[hawaii.edu]
  • They further suggest that type 1 clefts are associated with a low rate of anomalies and type 2 and 3 clefts with intermediate prognosis. Type 4 and 5 clefts are universally associated with concurrent anomalies and with fatal outcome[ 26 ].[wjgnet.com]


  • Etiology Clefting is a multifactorial issue, with both genetic and environmental causes cited. The observation of clustered cases of facial clefts in a particular family indicates a genetic basis.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Over the years many different classification systems based on morphological, anatomical or etiological features of OFCs have been proposed. However, postnatal classification may not be applicable to prenatal findings.[wjgnet.com]


  • Epidemiology References: [1] [2] [3] [4] Epidemiological data refers to the US, unless otherwise specified.[amboss.com]
  • Epidemiology Frequency The overall occurrence of cleft lip with or without cleft palate is approximately 1 in 750 to 1 in 1000 live births, establishing it as one of the most common congenital anomalies. [2, 3] Incidence varies by race, with clefts occurring[emedicine.medscape.com]
  • In the epidemiologic study of Doray et al. [ 8 ] CLs were unilateral in 79% of the cases (60/76), bilateral in 20% of the cases (15/76), and median in 1% (1/76); 55% of the unilateral CLs were right and 45% were left.[thieme-connect.com]
