Abstract

Cleft lip and palate are most common congenital defomity to affect the orofacial region. Cleft lip and palate are caused by abnormal development of primary and secondary palate. Its causative mechanism is not completely understood, but genetic and environmental factors play important roles. Lots of epidemiologic surveys have been done extensively about incidence, racial influence, sex ratio, parent age, associated syndrome and genetic factors. These researches are useful to dissolve many problems in prevention and treatment of cleft lip and palate. We performed epidemiologic survey of cleft lip and palate who visited the department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Guro hospital of Korea University from 1995 to 2004.
