Common features of Van der Woude syndrome include pits and or sinuses of the lower lip, cleft lip with or without cleft palate, isolated cleft palate, bifid uvula, and hypodontia. When associated with a web of the popliteal region, it is called popliteal pterygium syndrome. Here we present a case of popliteal pterygium syndrome with incidental finding of membranous type choanal atresia on attempt at nasotracheal intubation for general anesthesia.
