We report a family in which four members of three generations are affected by median cleft palate. The proband and her mother have additional features including bilateral single transverse palmar creases, broad great toes and hypoplastic fifth toenails. Dominant isolated cleft palate has rarely been reported, and there are no previous reports of dominant cleft palate with these associated features. We believe that this represents a previously unreported syndrome, which needs to be considered when assessing recurrence risk for cleft palate.
