Robinow syndrome (also named "fetal face syndrome") includes a series of anomalies including mesomelic brachymelia, bifid terminal phalanges of the hands and feet, abnormalities of vertebrae and ribs, and hypoplastic external genitalia. A midline cleft of the lower lip and mandible is an extremely rare maxillofacial deformity. Seventy cases have so far been described to our knowledge. We report a patient with Robinow syndrome and midline cleft of the lower lip and mandible and describe the reconstruction of these anomalies. We propose that this anomaly should be added to the range of malformations associated with the syndrome.
