A wedge-shaped anterior hairline extension is a very rare skin manifestation usually associated with congenital anomalies including a Tessier number 10 cleft. Other associated conditions are the Tessier number 9 cleft, the Fraser syndrome, and the Manitoba oculotrichoanal syndrome (MOTA syndrome). The Tessier number 10 cleft features include a coloboma of the middle third of the upper eyelid, and an eyebrow divided into two portions. The medial eyebrow portion may be absent and the lateral portion is angulated vertically, joining the hairline of the scalp. This creates a wedge-shaped anterior hairline extension. Herein we report on a case of a wedge-shaped anterior hairline extension associated with the Tessier number 10 cleft.
