Median clefts of the upper lip are rare. A case is described in which a median cleft of the upper lip was associated with symmetrical bimanual hexadactyly and bilateral accessory toes. A thorough search of the literature has revealed two similar cases and it is suggested that the association is sufficiently constant to form a recognisable syndrome.
