The etiology of Tessier no. 7 facial cleft involves embryonic developmental failure of the skeletal, soft tissue and neuromuscular structures derived from the first and the second branchial arches. The clinical expression may be highly variable, ranging from only a preauricular skin tag to macrostomia on the affected side and a cleft crossing the cheek to the ear. In this report, a case of no. 7 facial cleft accompanied by anophthalmia is presented. Although various combinations of facial cleft and anophthalmia have been reported previously, a similar case of a no. 7 facial cleft and anophthalmia has not been published previously. Although a no. 7 cleft is the least rare of the craniofacial clefts, this may in fact be the first case in which no. 7 facial cleft is accompanied by anophthalmia.
