Facial anomalies are frequent conditions in children in every part of the world. If these anomalies are not treated appropriately and adequately, there will be imposition of severe psychosocial problems on the parents of such children. And, the appropriateness and adequacy of the definitive treatment, which is often surgery, lie in the proper understanding of the anatomic and embryologic bases of these anomalies. This module addresses these issues and is very important to the practice of oral and maxillofacial surgery.
