Congenital Cleft Lip and Palate is a common birth defect with an incidence of 1 in 600 to 800 live births. This defect usually affects either the left, right or in some cases both sides of the lip and is called a Tessier Type 3 cleft. Clefting of the face in the midline is exceedingly rare and such a case of a Median Facial Cleft Syndrome is being reported which occurs in nearly 1 in 1,000,000 live births. This was first described by Bechard in 1823 and can be sporadic or part of an inherited syndrome. The child had a median cleft of the upper lip, nose, and palate of a severe, complete variety, with absent philtrum of the upper lip, premaxilla, columella, nasal septum and vomer.
