Abstract

Kabuki make-up syndrome (Niikawa-Kuroki syndrome), recognized in Japan in 1981, is characterized by mental and growth retardation with specific craniofacial malformation such as lower palpebral eversioni and depressed nasali tip. In this paper we describe a case associated with cleft lip and palate. Attention should be paid by maxillofacial surgeons to this syndrome, since 41% of the cases have been associated with cleft lip and palate (Niikawa et al., 1988; Tonoki and Niikawa, 1988).
