Case report

A 25-year-old woman with a normal first trimester ultrasound and negative triple test screen was referred to our department at the 25th week of pregnancy. She had taken no drugs or chemotherapy. We discovered a unilateral cleft lip with no other anomalies. The baby was delivered and surgical treatment was planned six months later. Here are some images that we obtained.
