The oro-ocular cleft no. 4 according to the Tessier classification is one of the rarest facial cleft, and to this day, few cases have been reported in the literature. We describe the case of a 9-month-old girl with a complete bilateral facial cleft. On the right cornea protruded a hard lesion, a corneal staphyloma. We describe the 3 primary surgical steps used to restore the possibility of satisfactory feeding, to promote language acquisition, and to protect vision in the nonaffected eye. The psychological and social aspects of severe facial deformities in developing countries are also tackled.
