From the introduction: In F. Lannér’s work [Meddel. Lunds Univ. Mat. Semin. 11 (1950; Zbl 0037.39802)], all tetrahedra in the hyperbolic space \(H^3\) whose dihedral angles are integers submultiples of \(\pi\) are found. Starting with works by E. B. Vinberg and by L. A. Best, reflection groups in the faces of Lannér tetrahedra and their subgroups of finite index attract attention of mathematicians specializing in discrete groups. In this paper, we prove that all discrete extensions of the groups mentioned in the complete isometry group \(\text{Is}(H^3)\) of hyperbolic space are normal and give their complete description.
