Craniofacial clefts are very rare and manifest in a variety of patterns. Tessier classified these clefts in 1973 and numbered them 0 to 14. Tessier No. 4 Facial cleft is a rare variant of craniofacial cleft. Not more than 50 cases are reported in world literature, amongst which only 5 cases are true bilateral in nature. However, combinations of two different variants are not very uncommon. A case of male Indian child aged 4 years with a true bilateral Tessier No. 4 Facial cleft is reported. He also had anophthalmos of the left eye. This is probably the first case in which true bilateral Tessier No. 4 Facial cleft with anophthalmos of one eye is noticed.
