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.
