Campomelic dysplasia (CD), is a lethal dwarfism of the newborn, characterised by rhizomelic dwarfism, bowed femora and tibiae, associated with other skeletal and extraskeletal defects. It is suggested that there are long-limbed and short-limbed varieties. Various clinical and radiological anomalies have been described in both types of CD. Here, we describe for the first time a cleft in the mandibula in a patient with campomelic dysplasia.
