Complete bilateral Tessier's facial cleft number 5: surgical strategy for a rare case report.
Surg Radiol Anat. 2019 May; 41(5):569-574.SR

Abstract

The oro-ocular cleft number 5 according to the Tessier classification is one of the rarest facial clefts and few cases have been reported in the literature. Although the detailed structure of rare craniofacial clefts is well established, the cause of these pathological conditions is not. There are no existing guidelines for the management of this particular kind of cleft. We describe the case of a 19-month-old girl with a complete bilateral facial cleft. We describe the surgical steps taken to achieve the primary correction of the soft tissue deformation. Embryologic development and radiological approach are discussed, as are also the psychological and social aspects of severe facial deformities.
