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 bilateral on both sides of the upper lip, as a cleft palate, cleft lip and palate or cleft lip and maxilla. Other types of cranio-facial clefts such as lateral clefts of facial clefts are rarer. Cleft lips and palates account for seventy per cent of the cases.
