Cleft Lip

Cleft Lip is a birth abnormality in which the tissues forming the lip do not completely fuse. The degree of the cleft lip can vary greatly, from mild (notching of the lip) to severe (large opening from the lip up through the nose). Cleft lip may also be seen in conjunction with cleft palate.
