The paper reports a rare case of mild form of Bushy syndrome with facial abnormalities. Other names for this syndrome are Cornelia de Lange syndrome/Brachmann- de Lange syndrome/Amsterdam dwarfism/Bushy syndrome. Few case reports were reported in the literature and this case report was presented with the motto of fabricating feeding palate in this syndromic patient and the procedure is similar to that of any other cleft palate.
