Abstract:   (10237 Views)

Purpose: Bifid uvula is the mildest form of cleft palate. The size of the cleft may vary from minimal to complete separation of the uvula into two lobes. The prevalence is %0.3-2.2 and is greater in males than in females (M/F:2.5/1). The disturbance appears to be autosomal dominant. This developmental defect may occur in syndromes such as Marfan, Crouzon, Apert and Pierre Robin.

Case Report: In this report, the patient was a 29 years old man whoever referred for dental restoration and scaling. He had Bifid uvula, dome – shaped palate, malocclusion and limited movement of mandibule. He didn’t have any systemic problems and syndrome.
