Pierre-Robin Syndrome or anomalad is a congenital abnormality characterized by cleft, micrognathia and glossoptosis. Feeding of a neonate with a complete cleft palate is a very difficult task. A multidisciplinary approach is required to manage the complex features involved in the case of such children and their families. Here, we are presenting a case of a one day old neonate having Pierre-Robin syndrome with complete cleft palate in whom we constructed a palatal obturator for feeding.
