Cleft Lip and/or Cleft Palate
Cleft lip or palate (CL/CP) is the most common craniofacial malformation with an estimated incidence from approximately 1 in 700 to 1 in 1,000 live births among Caucasians (Carinci et al. 2000). CL/CP may occur as an isolated finding or may be found in association with other congenital malformations.
