In this case report, we present an unusual combination of three congenital malformations: median cleft of the lower lip, lip pits, and unilateral cleft of the lip and palate without familial occurrence. From an etiological point of view, this combination of malformations could have happened during the late embryogenic period. Why this combination is uncommon is not known.
