Abstract

Cleft lip and palate (CLP) is one of the most common congenital anomaly affecting the oro-facial region. Growth and development is variously affected in such patients which in turn affect the social and psychological maturation of the individual along with its negative impact on facial aesthetics. Numerous multi-centric studies have been conducted world-wide to establish a specific treatment protocol for the management of CLP cases to achieve ideal results. But the situation, especially in developing countries is still alarming and it is not uncommon to encounter untreated/partially treated adult CLP patients in our clinical practice. The aim of this case report is to highlight interdisciplinary management of such an adult case of unilateral cleft lip and palate (GOSLON 5) along with moderate velopharyngeal incompetency (alveolar grafting was never attempted) by single step simultaneous bijaw surgery and alveolar bone grafting.
