Isolated lower lip fistulas in Van der Woude syndrome.
J Craniofac Surg. 2009 Sep; 20(5):1612-4.JC

Abstract

Van der Woude syndrome (VWS) is a dominantly inherited disease of orofacial region. Characteristic features of this syndrome are bilateral lower lip sinuses along with cleft lip or palate deformity. However, isolated lower lip pits in VWS without any cleft syndrome is uncommon. Lip pits in VWS are usually asymptomatic; however, patients may complain of watery drainage and/or infection. In this report, asymptomatic isolated lower lip sinuses without any cleft syndrome in a patient and his father are presented.
