Abstract

A case of “false” median cleft of the upper lip is reported.
The facial deformities include defects of prolabium, premaxilla and columella. Mental retardation was present, however the abnormalities of CT scanning and EEG and chromosome aberration were not detected.
According to the clinical features, this case was considered to be the third type of Kundrat's classification of arhinencephaly.
Operation was done by Gillies' fan flap method modified by the authors for the construction of median cleft lip. The postoperative course was good.
