The "Double" Tessier 7 Cleft: An Unusual Presentation of a Transverse Facial Cleft.Cleft Palate Craniofac J. 2018 07; 55(6):903-907.CP
Congenital macrostomia, or Tessier number 7 cleft, is a rare craniofacial anomaly. We present a unique patient with bilateral macrostomia that consisted of a "double" transverse cleft on the left side and a single transverse cleft on the right side. A staged reconstructive approach was used to repair the "double" left-sided clefts. This staged technique produced a satisfactory aesthetic and functional outcome.
