Types of cleft lips and palates

Types of cleft lips and palates

Cleft deformations can vary considerably. They can occur as a cleft lip either on one side of the face or bilaterally on both sides of the upper lip, as a cleft palate or a combined cleft lip and palate. Other types of cranio-facial clefts such as lateral clefts of facial clefts are more seldom. Cleft lips and palates account to seventy per cent of the cases.
