Abstract

Craniofacial cleft is a rare congenital deformity in which there are fissures of a facial structure classified by Tessier. A palatoplasty to reconstruct the muscle sling and to close the cleft of the velum was performed. Acceptable postoperative appearance of the velum was seen after 6 months. Although further follow-up is still needed for velopharyngeal function, this case report provides details of the anatomical deformities and our surgical approach to this atypical bilateral cleft palate.
