Abstract

Summary The incidence of twins affected by cleft lip and palate deformity, in an unselected series over a 10-year period is reported. The case histories of five monozygotic twin pairs are recorded and certain features of the early maxillary growth in one twin pair are analysed, and the reasons for the differences found are discussed. Consideration is given to the environmental factors which may be relevant in cleft formation in one of a monozygotic twin pair.
