Facial clefts are very common facial anomalies encountered in practice. However, lower facial clefts are very rare. Tessier has grouped these defects as cleft no. 30. Only 65 cases have been reported in the literature until 1996. Median cleft of the lower lip, mandible and bifid tongue with ankyloglossia has been reported in this anomaly. We report this rare cleft associated with bifid tongue with foregut duplication cyst over the floor of mouth.
