Epidemiological variables in oral clefts were examined in a cohort of patients with congenital malformations from the canton of Vaud in Switzerland during the years 1990-1999. Among 77'259 newborns or foetuses, 144 cases of oral clefts were identified in the Registre Vaudois des Anomalies Congénitales (RVAC), yielding a total prevalence of 18.6 per 10'000. These clefts consisted of 84 (58%) cases of cleft lip with or without cleft palate (CL/P) and 60 (42%) cases of cleft palate only (CP). Associated anomalies were found in 45% of cases. Our results are compared with previous reports in other parts of Europe.
