Van der Woude Syndrome (VWS) is a rare autosomal dominant disorder with high penetrance and variable expressivity. The condition occurs in about 1:100,000–1:40,000 stillborn or live births and is characterized by lower lip pits, cleft lip, and/or cleft palate. Associated features of VWS include ankyloglossia, high arched palate, limb anomalies, congenital heart defects bifid uvula and syngnathia. We report four interesting cases of VWS with orofacial features. None of the four patients had any family history of lip pits, cleft lip, and/or cleft palate. The first patient with VWS showed a fusion of primary mandibular anterior teeth and the fourth patient demonstrated a supernumerary mandibular incisor. These features are very unusual in patients with VWS.
