Congenital cleft lip palate occurs heterogeneously worldwide. Out of the one-hundred and thirty million newborns worldwide, 3.6 million identified with a disability, 7.6 million (approximately 5.8%) being born with a congenital anomaly. Additionally, 7.5% of them are registered with having cleft lip palate. In Mongolia, the statistics from the Mongolia Health Department reported that in 2012 cleft lip palate occurred among 1 out of 1072 individuals in Mongolia [1]. Over the years, there have been many measures taken to ameliorate these issues around the world. Recently, the sophisticated three-dimensional ultra-sonography equipment is evaluable in pediatric science. Thanks to this equipment, we are able to detect the orofacial defects and diagnose infants properly in advance. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the lip and palate of a fetus by using three-dimensional ultra-sonography in the second and third trimester of gestational period. Our research aims to detect fetus defects in the early stage of birth and diagnose it in advance [9]. Due to the lack of research on the above-mentioned issues in Mongolia, we decided to conduct this research by using three-dimensional ultra-sonography to detect and diagnose congenital cleft lip palate. By doing this research, we will be able to better assist those suffering from congenital malformation in Mongolia.
