Partial cleft of the orbicularis oris muscle without skin and mucosa can also be called "discontinuity of the orbicularis oris muscle" or "subepithelial cleft". Microform cleft lip or mini-cleft lip are better definitions. We present two women aged 25 and 29 years old who complained of vermilion notching, vertical depression on the upper lip, and asymmetry of lower lateral cartilage of the nose. The "discontinuity of the muscle" was found at operation in both cases and reconstructed…

CONGENITAL MALFORMATIONS ASSOCIATED WITH CLEFT LIP AND PALATE

TLDR
It is concluded that cleft palate is more common in male than female pediatric population and left side was more affected than right in patients with unilateral cleft, and congenital malformations associated with cleft lip and palate.

TLDR
A previously undescribed occult malformation of the upper lip manifest by discontinuity of the orbicularis oris muscle is presented and the relationship to the current concept of abnormal maxillary process development is discussed.

Ultrasonographic detection of orbicularis oris defects in first degree relatives of isolated cleft lip patients.

TLDR
These findings suggest that occult OO defects may be part of the spectrum of the CL phenotype, that offspring of individuals with such defects are at an increased risk to develop overt CL, and that ultrasound may be a useful tool in future population studies designed to identify CL susceptibility genes.

TLDR
Treatment by direct suture of the muscle has been successful and a second case of rupture of the orbicularis oris in a trumpet player is presented.
