Objective: Among the rarest of the craniofacial clefts is the Tessier no. 4 cleft; and hence little has been published about its management and treatment. Complete forms of the cleft yield poor surgical results because of the shortened oculoalar and oculo-oral distance and inadequate soft and bony tissue. Multiple sequential corrective operations are required. A primary early concern is the protection of the eye, particularly in severe forms in which corneal exposure occurs.. This article presents two cases of Tessier no. 4 clefts, one unilateral and the other bilateral, and discusses the problems encountered during their surgical and postoperative managements.
