Cleft lip and cleft palate: cephalometric characteristics of affected individuals, their relatives and a control population Fisura labiopalatina: características cefalométricas de individuos afectados, de sus parientes y de una población control.
Eight cephalometric parameters were determined in individuals affected with cleft lip and cleft palate, their parents and siblings and a sample of normal individuals. No differences were found in males in any group. In contrast, affected females had lower measurements than their female relatives, and these lower latter in turn had measurements than control females. Although differences between groups were significant enough overlap existed and therefore genetic counseling based on these measurements would be uncertain.
