Clefting of the lip with or without an associated cleft palate may be present in varying degrees of severity. The so-called microform cleft lip or forme fruste has been characteristically described as having the appearance of a repaired cleft lip. The following case describes a patient with microform cleft lip and a complete cleft of the hard and soft palates. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of such an association.
