Congenital oral synechia associated with cleft palate: Cleft palate medial synechia syndrome? We have encountered one case of oral synechia by a single medial cord-like adhesion, accompanied by cleft palate, micrognathia, ankyloglossia, and shortening of the superior labial frenulum. One month after birth, we resected the adhesion that had been connected to the frenulum of the tongue from the rear of the hard palate and the vicinity of the posterior nasal spine of the horizontal plate of the palatine bone to the median of the apex of the tongue. Several authors have reported cases of oral synechia by lateral adhesions, in which there were other facial anomalies, as “CPLS syndrome.” With this concept in mind, we have tentatively named this case’s condition as “cleft palate medial synechia syndrome.” http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png European Journal of Plastic Surgery Springer Journals

Abstract

We have encountered one case of oral synechia by a single medial cord-like adhesion, accompanied by cleft palate, micrognathia, ankyloglossia, and shortening of the superior labial frenulum. One month after birth, we resected the adhesion that had been connected to the frenulum of the tongue from the rear of the hard palate and the vicinity of the posterior nasal spine of the horizontal plate of the palatine bone to the median of the apex of the tongue. Several authors have reported cases of oral synechia by lateral adhesions, in which there were other facial anomalies, as “CPLS syndrome.” With this concept in mind, we have tentatively named this case’s condition as “cleft palate medial synechia syndrome.”
