Cleft Lip and Palate

Cleft lip and palate occurs as a result of a fusion during different phases of development inside the mother’s womb (in the embryological stage). The cleft lip and palate is seen in different races at different rates seen on average in 750-1000 births in Europe. It is mostly common in Japan (1 in about 600 births) and it’s seen the least in black Americans (about 1 in 2200 births). In this illness, which is called rabbit lip among society, 80% of the cases have a lip cleft, on one side and predominantly on the left side. The left / right ratio is 2/1. Use of certain medication, vitamin deficiencies, virus infections, cigarette smoking, genetics (familial) are thought to be the cause.
