  author={Journals Iosr and Tiwari Preeti and Tapadar Jayanto},
Oblique facial clefts are extremely rare congenital deformities. Partial duplication of maxilla is a rare isolated anomaly. The concurrent existence of maxillary duplication and Tessier clefts has been described previously, specially the Tessier 7 clefts. In presented case, partial duplication of maxilla has occurred associated with Tessier 3 and incomplete Tessier 6 cleft along with cleft palate which might be the first case of its kind till now. Traditionally the correction of oblique facial… Expand
