    Abstract

    To investigate the incidence of cleft lip or palate or both (CLP) in Japan, 303738 babies born in 1532 institutions between 1994 and 1995 were examined and 437 (0.14%) were found to have abnormalities. Of these babies, 32.1% had cleft lip, 43.3% had cleft lip and palate, and 24.8% had cleft palate (Table 2). These results show that the incidence of cleft lip and palate has declined compared with the period from 1981 to 1982.
