OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to evaluate the nutrition status before cleft palate repair in patients with mild form isolated Pierre Robin Sequence (PRS). METHODS: Detailed history and physical examination of 34 patients with mild form isolated PRS were compared with those of the control group with isolated cleft palate (ICP) at the age of 2 and 12 months. RESULTS: The height and weight of the 2 groups at 2 months were significantly different, whereas there was no significant difference at 12 months. The height and weight grades for PRS improved from 2 to 12 months. The feeding grades differed significantly at 2 months between the 2 groups, but showed no significant difference at 12 months. CONCLUSIONS: Patients with mild form isolated PRS had a nutrition status similar to patients with ICP at the age of 12 months. General conditions of mild form isolated PRS pose no problem with cleft palate repair at 12 months.
