The Van der Woude syndrome (dominantly inherited lip pits and clefts)


Schinzel, Albert; Klausler, Martin (1986). The Van der Woude syndrome (dominantly inherited lip pits and clefts). Journal of Medical Genetics, 23(4):291-294.

Abstract

A patient with symmetrical lower lip pits with or without cleft lip or palate is most likely to be the carrier of a dominant gene that causes the syndrome of lip pits and clefts or Van der Woude syndrome.
Familial occurrence of lower lip pits and clefts was first described by Demarquay in 1845. Watanabe et al reviewed some 100 cases in 1951, and Van der Woude delineated the syndrome in 1954.
