Abstract

We present the case of a newborn with a rare combination of trifid tongue, macroglossia, ankyloglossia, median cleft of the lower lip, bony Tumour on the mandible and cleft of the palate. Our surgical procedure consisted in the release and repair of the trifid tongue; removal of the Tumour on the mandible and repair of the cleft of the lower lip. Finally, we carried out a novel technique to reduce the enlarged tongue. This new technique of achieving uniform tongue reduction has its essential character in a rocket-like incision in the tongue, which is different in construction and quality from the over plus of techniques described so far. Among its variety of skills is the reduction of the square-like form and preclusion of the midline trough of the keyhole technique. It gives a functionally satisfactory and aesthetically pleasing result. The surgeons who apply this surgical procedure call it the Oji technique
