Cleft lip and palate (CLP) are commonly occurring birth defects which occur due to failure of fusion of various developmental processes of the face, leading to a visible defect in the lip and palate. In severe cases, this defect may extend over the face, thus causing facial clefts. The present case of a 7-year-old girl is unique in the sense that she has right and left side facial clefts of different severity with bilateral accessory maxilla, extra set of dentition, unilateral CLP of the right side, and a double soft palate. Other less associated findings in the case are severe maxillary protrusion, complex open bite, downward and backward rotation of mandible, and incompetent lips with apparently no limb deformities. With some relevant data in hand, we present this case for various suggestions and best possible treatment plan.
