Much progress has been made in understanding the genetic contributions to isolated forms of cleft lip and palate, however this effort is yet to be translated to enhanced genetic counseling or prevention strategies. Interest in the topic was renewed with the ability to perform genome-wide genotyping and after a few of those relatively larger scale studies, many are considering more targeted efforts and to focus on specific genes and/or loci. Here we discuss this crossroad and suggest targeted approaches and rethought clinical descriptions are a better way to move the field forward...

Termination of pregnancy for fetal anomaly is legal in the UK with no upper limit, if two doctors, in good faith, agree "there is a substantial risk that if the child were born it would suffer from such physical or mental abnormalities as to be seriously handicapped". This is Clause E of the Human Fertlisation and Embryology Act. The most commonly sighted Clause is C, which states "the pregnancy has not exceeded its twenty-fourth week and that the continuance of the pregnancy would involve risk, greater than if the pregnancy were terminated, of injury to the physical or mental health of the pregnant woman"...

James E Saunders, Zane Rankin, Kathryn Y Noonan
The Global Burden of Disease (GBD) project provides longitudinal analysis of the global burden of otolaryngologic diseases by measuring the all-cause mortality, years of life lost, the years of life lived with disability, and disability-adjusted life years. Hearing loss burden is assessed overall and as sequelae of other diseases, such as otitis media or meningitis. Using these measures, we can appreciate the high prevalence and disability related to hearing loss globally. Other otolaryngologic diseases that contribute to the GBD include otitis media, cleft lip and palate, head and neck cancer, facial trauma, and oral disorders...

INTRODUCTION: There is controversial evidence from the literature regarding the protective effect of folic acid supplementation during pregnancy against orofacial clefts. The authors undertook this meta-analysis to assess whether folate supplementation during pregnancy can reduce the risk of nonsyndromic cleft lip with or without cleft palate (CL/P) and cleft palate only (CPO) in infants. METHODS: Eligible articles were identified by searching databases, including PubMed, Medline, Scopus, ISI (Web of Knowledge) to September 2017...

Truncating mutations in the last and penultimate exons of the PPM1D gene were recently described as a cause for mild to severe intellectual disability in fourteen patients. Feeding difficulties, periods of fever and vomiting as well as a high pain threshold were described as additional characteristic features and the disorder was subsequently termed "intellectual developmental disorder with gastrointestinal difficulties and high pain threshold (IDDGIP)" in the OMIM database (MIM # 617450). Here we report on an additional patient carrying a novel de novo truncating mutation NM_003620...

This study was carried out on 26 unilateral cleft lip and palate (UCLP) cases with mean age 3.6 ± 0.7 months.3D facial images were captured for each infant 2-3 days before the repair of cleft lip and at 4 months following surgery at a mean age of 8.2 ± 1.8 months, using a stereophotogrammetry imaging system. An iterative closest point (ICP) algorithm was used to superimpose the 3D facial model to its mirror image using VRMesh software. After the superimposition, the face model was divided into seven anatomical regions...

Median cleft deformities of the lower lip and mandible are very rare congenital anomalies. Our patient had median cleft of the lower lip, mandible, and the chin with tongue duplication, ankyloglossia, and cleft strap muscles with 2 neck contracture bands. This anomaly was associated with congenital heart disease transposition of great vessels, large ventricular septal defect, and severe pulmonary stenosis. Early repair was done at 6 months to improve feeding.

In this review, classical data on the early steps in human odontogenesis are summarized and updated with specific insights into the development of the upper and lower embryonic jaws to help in understanding some oral pathologies. The initial step of human odontogenesis is classically characterized by two parallel horseshoe-shaped epithelial laminae. These originate from the oral epithelium and an ingrowth into the jaw mesenchyme: the internal dental lamina gives rise to deciduous tooth primordia, while the external vestibular lamina represents the developmental base of the oral vestibule...
