Orbital hypertelorism is a craniofacial abnormality that arises on its own or as part of a number of syndromes. It is not uncommon to find the condition in association with maxillary hypoplasia. This manuscript reports an uncommon case of Tessier 2, 12 with orbital hypertelorism and dentoskeletal maxillary prognathism. To correct the condition, the first stage procedure was a modification of facial bipartition, according to the need of the case, followed by correction of alar cleft by Denonvilliers technique.
