Holoprosencephaly is a rare disorder of embryological development that presents with midline clefting of the lip. The incidence has been estimated at approximately 1 in 15,000. Previously, infants with severe holoprosencephaly were thought to die within 1-2 years of birth and seldom to benefit from surgery. Survival has increased with improved perinatal care and support services. Parents often request complete cheiloplasty, because the presence of a columella greatly influences aesthetic outcome. The authors report two cases of simultaneous columella reconstruction with cheiloplasty.
