A Case of Rare Craniofacial Clefts: Tessier No .7 Cleft.
Hyun Jung Lee, Nak Gyun Chung, So Young Kim, In Kyung Sung, Chung Sik Chun
Craniofacial clefts are rare among facial anomalies with an incidence of 1.5 to 5 per 100,000 births, and 1 per 100 cases of cleft lip and palate. The Tessier No. 7 clefts are unusual lesions that result from failure of the embryonic mandibular and maxillary processes to properly fuse and form the corners of the mouth. We experienced a case of Tessier No. 7 craniofacial cleft in a 1 day-old female patient who presented with a macrostomia and auricular malformation. The diagnosis was established by clinical and radiographic findings. A brief review of literature was made.
Key Words: Craniofacial clefts, Tessier No. 7 Cleft
