Cleft palate and oral synechiae in a newborn infant

Laura Morris, Sanjeev Rath, Shri Babarao


Cleft lip or palate associated with fibrous bands, also known as oral synechiae, is rare. This report describes a newborn infant with four fibrous bands in the oral cavity, a left-sided cleft lip and a cleft of the hard and soft palate. The fibrous bands made feeding difficult and raised concerns about the baby’s airway as they prevented normal positioning of the tongue.
