A female new-born with bilateral lateral facial clefts, resulting in macrostomia, is reported. In addition she had a diminished palpebral fissure length. She died suddenly at the age of 6 months, presumably due to respiratory insufficiency. The unique combination of facial anomalies, present in this patient, has not been reported before. We discuss the differential diagnosis and the classification of facial clefts.
