Van der Woude syndrome (VWS) is a rare autosomal dominant condition typically comprising the cleft lip or cleft palate and pits of the lower lips. The degree to which individuals carrying the gene are affected varies widely, even within families. The variable manifestations include lip pits alone, absent teeth, and isolated cleft lip and palate of varying degrees of severity, bifid uvula, ankyloglossia, and enamel hypoplasia. We report a case of VWS manifesting with bifid uvula, hypodontia, ankyloglossia, and enamel hypoplasia.
