Prenatal diagnosis of oral cystic lesions is rare but is reported more frequently. The diagnosis of sublingual cyst is important because of the potential for airway obstruction. A rare case of a foregut duplication cyst associated with unilateral sclerocorneal microphthalmia is reported. The differential diagnosis and the limitations of the prenatal ultrasound and the postnatal MRI are discussed.
