Abstract

We experienced a case of cat cry syndrome with transverse facial cleft. We reported this case with sound analysis and some considerations.
The patient was a two-month-old boy. The chief complaint was a cleft from the left angular to the cheek. His face was distinctive and had a left side transverse facial cleft, micrognathia, microencephaly, saddle nose, malformation of the external ear and ocular hypertelorism were observed. His crying resembled kitten mewing, therefore we assumed this syndrome. We examinated his chromosomes and definitely diagnosed the cat cry syndrome. We analysed his crying and determined that the sound resembled kitten mewing. He had a plastic operation of transverse facial cleft under general anesthesia at his seventh month.
