OBJECTIVES Cleft lip with or without cleft palate, is the most common serious congenital anomaly that affects the orofacial regions. The management and care of the cleft patient constitutes a substantial proportion of the workload of the Nigerian maxillofacial surgeon and allied specialties. Yet, there are no specific programmes targeted at this group. We believe that the findings of this study is capable of identifying useful interventions for designing programs that will lead to a reduction…

Prevalence, pattern and perceptions of cleft lip and cleft palate among children born in two hospitals in Kisoro District, Uganda
TLDR
The period prevalence of combined cleft lip and palate in two hospitals in Kisoro District was comparable to some findings elsewhere, but policy makers need to strategically plan for provision of rehabilitation with feeding obturators to facilitate easy feeding to gain weight before surgical intervention of the affected children.

TLDR
The birthplace of babies with CLP in terms of home or hospital delivery influences registration of cases, and CLP cases may be missed because the anomaly remains undiagnosed at the time of birth or because of lack of interest in registration.

TLDR
Although uptake of antenatal service was common practice among mothers of babies with orofacial clefts in this study, no antenatal predisposing factors were identified.

It is believed that increasing availability of OFC repair services, together with an increase in awareness campaigns, may help to resolve the issues of late presentation, poor compliance to follow up and poverty.
