The incidence of the craniofacial cleft is rare ranging between 1.43 and 4.85/100,000 births. Tessier number nine cleft being the rarest, there are a few reports of detailed ophthalmologic examinations performed in them. In this study, 1-day-old female neonate delivered by normal vaginal delivery at term, weighing 1480 g presented with right eye dystopia, cleft extending through the lateral third of the upper eyelid, brow ending at the temporal region, conjunctival congestion, clear cornea 10 mm in diameter, normal anterior chamber, pupil 2 mm reactive to light, clear lens, and normal fundus. Cleft extended downward from the right medial canthus involving the nasal ala and left forearm had an oblique-crease with camptodactyly. We thus report a case of anterior segment abnormality with an oblique craniofacial cleft. The cause of which is unclear, amniotic band syndrome being a possible cause.
