Median cleft of lower lip and mandible is a rare congenital anomaly and is also described as Tessier's no 30 cleft. It is also associated with other congenital abnormalities with varying degree of severity. The condition was first described by Couronine in 1819 and since then very few cases have been reported. We report a case of median cleft of lower lip and ankyloglossia, which was surgically treated. The etiology, clinical feature and treatment are discussed.
