Cleft palate with or without ankyloglossia, X-linked
A congenital mouth abnormality characterized by fissure of the soft and/or hard palate, due to faulty fusion. Some patients also manifest ankyloglossia, a condition in which movements of the tongue are restricted. Complete ankyloglossia is due to fusion between the tongue and the floor of the mouth. Partial ankyloglossia is due to a short lingual frenum or one which is attached too near the tip of the tongue.
