Cleft lip and/or palate are congenital conditions characterised by an opening or split in the upper lip, the roof of the mouth (palate) or both, that are present from birth.
A cleft lip can be on one side (unilateral) or both sides (bilateral) of the upper lip. Cleft lip can occur alone, or can occur with a cleft palate. Similarly, a cleft palate may occur in isolation without a cleft lip deformity.
