Pierre Robin Sequence is a congenital condition involving a combination of micrognathia and glossoptosis with or without a cleft palate. Feeding problems are often associated with cleft anamoly which make it difficult for the infant to maintain adequate nutrition. Here we present a case of 58-day-old neonate with Pierre Robin sequence, in whom we contructed a palatal obturtor for feeding.
